Do you have to be leagally married for a step parent adoption?
A Parent asks, I live in Colorado. I have an 18 month old daughter whos father doesn’t see her by his choice and will not pay child support. He said he will sign over his rights. My common law husband would like to adopt her. We are also expecting another one. So my question is do you have to be leagally married in the state of colorado? What is the process of step parent adoption here?
