Adoption

questions & answers

Question: I'm 25 years old, and was wondering if its still possible for my stepdad to adopt me. We have been trying to do it for years but have never actually started the process and would like to do so now. If someone could please give me an answer it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Answer: According to A.R.S. 14-8101 "another adult person who is a stepchild, niece, nephew, cousin or grandchild of the adopting person" may be adopted by an agreement of adoption approved by a decree of adoption, even though they are over the age of 21.
