What is the name of your state? Georgia
I was interested in finding out what steps I must take to have my husband whom I married this past March (2003) adopt my daughter. She is now 2 years old and at the time of her birth the biological father was not interested in being involved with either one of us and as I was unwed I had to mark the father unknown if he wasn't willing to sign a paper to acknowledge paternity. Now he is aware of my current situation and has agreed to do whatever it takes to help us out with an adoption, he has been aware of the baby and aloud to participate this whole time but did not want to do so. Do I need to have the biofather's rights terminated even though he is marked as unknown and if so what steps do I need to take to terminate them? How do I go about an adoption because now I live in Georgia but the baby was born in Pennsylvania and the biofather still resides there? Is there a waiting period before my husband can adopt her? Thank you for your time and I look forward to any advice someone might have for me.
