How do you adopt a child that is not an adult?
Adult adoption is handled differently in all states. Some state statutes only provide for adult adoption if the person to be adopted is of diminished capacity. Some states require the consent of the spouse of the person to be adopted (if married), some require notification of biological parent(s), and some require nothing more than the consent of the adult parties. Parent 1 and Parent 2 must locate the requirements for adult adoption in their state.
