Q: 

Will Having Bipolar Disorder Prevent Me From Getting A child Through adoption?

A: It could. The agency likely will investigate the severity of the disorder, treatment efficacy (past and current), treatment compliance, prognosis, and other variables such as past episodes of severe depression or mania. The issue (hopefully) would be whether you might pose a risk to the child, such as through abuse, neglect, confusion, or impaired judgment, during a mood episode. A diagnosis of bi polar disorder in and of itself will not prevent a person from qualifying to adopt. A social worker will interview the applicant and gather information from the applicant''s psychiatrist to determine how well managed the condition is and if/ how it would impact the applicant''s ability to parent a child in a healthy manner. It depends on the type...


Q: 

If you couldn`t conceive naturally would you go IVF or adopt?

A: Personally I would say yes. But in Scotland there are a number of schemes running that allow IVF treatment on the National Health Service so money is not a problem. My oldest sister and her husband had IVF many years ago and thankfully it took first time. They had a lovely baby boy. Well that `baby boy` is now a young man of 17 years and none of us can imagine life without him, he`s an absolute gem!. adoption is of course always an option. But in the UK at least, many couples are put off by the length of time the process takes and the,at times, un-necessary standards and stipulations they put on couples who want to adopt. Most of these couples would make excellent parents, and while I agree that the child`s safety should be paramount when...

Q: 

What are the benefits of adoption?

A: giving a child that already is here a home and family... the benefit of adopting a kid is the opportunity of being a mother, bringing a miracle home, you know, saving a life. but if your too young, dont do it. live your life while your young. trust me, enjoy these years. if your old enough ( at least 18 or 19 ), if you think your ready, go for it (: People will adopt pets and get SOOO attached. Can you believe how a child affects them? I grew up in an orphanage and when a kid went thru the adoption process it was awesome. the parents would come there several times and the kids knew that this was good . -- We were young and did not know why it was good but we were happy for those that got adopted. Today it is...

Q: 

Stepparent adoption/name change

A: Hi Paula, the biological father"s consent must be obtained or the court must waive that consent requirement for the adoption to take place. The mother is going to have to do some investigating to obtain the biological father"s last name and at least one address where he was known to have  resided so that a due diligence search can be made for the biological father so that he may be given notice of the adoption. If the biological father has not been involved with the child and does not give his consent the court can waive the consent requirement over the biological father"s objection, if to do so, is shown to be in the best interest of the child. The court can also waive the consent...


Q: 

What age is appropriate to tell your child that she is adopted? love to hear from experienced moms

A: i was adopted at at 3 months of age and my biological sister was also adopted at the same time but to another family. she is eleven months older than me. my adoptive parents were best friends with her adoptive parents. my family told me from the beginning that i was adopted and i knew that she was my sister but i didnt really understand till i was about 9.. i drew on a stuffed animal i had and my mother said not to because it was a present from my birth mom. i suddenly realized everything and i was a little upset. eventhough they had told me from the start it never registered until then. i dont think there really is a certain age to tell them. you need to tell them from the start even if they dont undertand. let them know how special they are and how they were chosen by you. once they...

Q: 

stepparent adoption abandonment law

A: Hi jrodz02, the biological parent consent is required in a stepparent adoption. The court can waive that consent requirement where it is shown that the biological parent has abandoned the child to be adopted. The fact that the mother has not seen or contacted the child while having the means and ability to do so for over five years will help to prove the abandonment. However, the fact that the mother is current in her child support obligation detracts from the abandonment argument. You may still be able to prove abandonment but additional facts and circumstances will have to be developed and analyzed so that your best argument could be presented to the court. I hope this information was...


Q: 

Divorce-child custody

A: Hi Jonathan, if you cannot afford legal representation upon your return you should contact the legal aid society in your area of residence to determine if you qualify for free legal representation. From a case standpoint you will need to prove to the court that it would not be in the best interest of your daughter for the adoptive mother to have parental rights and that it would be in the bests interest for he if you were awarded sole parental responsibility. The court must consider the following criteria when making such determinations. (a) The demonstrated capacity and disposition of each parent to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing parent-child relationship, to honor the time-sharing schedule, and to be reasonable when changes are required. ...
