Does anybody know if a father has never been in a childs life and has been in and out of jail his whole life, can you have his rights dropped and your husband adopt that child? The father has seen my daughter maybe a total of 5 times and she will be 18 next year.

My question still stands. You don't adopt adults. In all honesty, it sounds like a pointless exercise.

I don't think you can adopt an adult.
Why do you want your husband to adopt her?

The point is, is so that my husband can adopt her...or when she is 18 does she have the right to choose if she wants?
