What sort of thing is this, if you can't help someone why not just skip the post to millions of other threads on nairaland

Stop allowing things like that bothers you, else you get unnecessary high blood pressure. Nairaland is full of dumb heads. Social media gives every lunatics a voice. Your reaction won't do anything to stop that. Next time, just shake your head and ignore.

If you people are legally married, and you are not into bigamy, will the adoption really be necessary? Will your son not automatically become his own if you can prove you have the right to custody of the child (in case his father is still alive)? I am not a lawyer o, just asking questions.
You are right. There is room to file for step-children.

Good Morning people. Please experts in the house I need an urgent reply.

I got married recently but had a son already. My husband wants to adopt my son legally so that he can file his papers for easier and faster migration into the US. My son will be 10 this August.

Searched everywhere on google on the adoption process but didn’t find suitable information. Please how do I go about this??

One's your legally married to him your son automatically qualifies. All your husband need to do is to file for both of u at once as long as u have your sons birth certificate. And you have court documents showing that u have full custody of your son. That's the most important document. I know cause I been through the process. And my son became an American citizen as soon as I file for him when he got here. 7 years ago.

No legality in blood, the son will look for his father someday. If u like adopt and readopt, the father will come for his so someday.
If your new man wants a son, he should get u pregnant.

As for easy access to US, get pregnant for him and watch how it goes, de DNA tests dont work

Wadda fuuuck is this oaf saying? Are you zoogerians this nastily idiotic? God damn!

Where is the father if the child? I don't think it's possible to just adopt another man's child just like that

Pardon my ignorance, why would your husband want to adopt your son legally (He can for good reasons, immigrating to the US is not part of it)? Don't tell me it's for immigration purpose. Your son can be filed for as a stepson to your husband, he won't necessarily have to adopt him before filling. Are you not part of the filling? The US consulate will only need you to prove you are the mother (DNA) and have the full custody of the child. I think you're over-complicating issues here.

Everything shouldn't be on the internet. No matter the country you are, check legal practitioners around. Ask questions there. If na USA, it's easy! You don't need to come here and tell us you are abroad and getting married.

Depending on the State you are in there is a procedure to be followed. There is also a court order that must be granted befire the process can be concluded

in summary, a parent –child relationship must have been established (temporary custody) before the court decision can be considered final.

Also, prospective adoptive parents must be at least aged 25 years of age and 21 years older than the child. For a married couple, one of the parents must meet the age requirement.

Some of the documents required are
birth certificate .
Pictures of the child,
Marriage Certificate
Proof of Nigerian citizenship
A police report

You can reach me on 07037836881 if you have any questions

I think the question really is where is your son's biological father in this? If no one is contesting or likely to contest then there is no talk of adoption as he is your child and your husband can give him his name. It's another matter if the biological father is both in the picture and providing care and support for the child!!!!! Any attempt at taking off without the bio. father's permission may hamper your intended process if he gets wind of it and reports, it may be reported as kidnapping. I am not a lawyer but I have seen similar situations.

. Pls stop this. Even if she likes,let her ve all the whole custody in this world,she cannot give another mans child to another man. Except they were not married before and the said father is not aware of his child.

My fault... but, the lady doesn't seem nice at all (see her responses to others). She's unappreciative of people's honest opinions.

The boy's father died 4 months to their wedding and that was many years ago.
