Stepmom who wants to adopt stepson
What is the name of your state? Virginia
My husband has full custody of his 8 year old son. His ex-wife is currently paying child support. I would like to adopt him, in case anything ever happened to my husband, I would have custody of his son. His ex-wife occasionally gets him every other weekend, but does not call her son ever. His grandmother calls and picks him up and drops him off.
My husband's ex-wife has said quite a few times she is considering giving up all rights to their son.
My question is, if I adopt his son does the ex-wife still pay child support? Also in the support papers she has reasonable visitation. Would she still get that if I adopted him?
Any suggestions or advice would be great.
