QUESTIONS

  • My husband would like to adopt my three children from a previous marriage. The issue is their father has been deported from the United States and is not allowed to return to this country. I have full legal and physical custody of the children which was given in our divorce prior to his deportation. my husband provides all support to them. How would we go about having my husband adopt the kids knowing that their father would not be able to sign any consents etc?
