I received a package from the Johnson County Courthouse in Olathe, Ks. This is the package they send out for simple, consentual, step-parent adoptions.
They just need to be retyped, taken to the court house to be filed and they will give you a hearing date and let you know if there is anything you are missing.
My problem is that the PETITION FOR ADOPTION form is just an example that was copied out of a law book. The page is 364/365 and at the top it says Appendix to Chapter 6, Appendix B, Petitions, Form 1. Stepparent Adoption Petition.
Unfortunately, the lady that was making the copies did not copy from 366-376. I know for a fact that I am missing part of the actual petition form, but don't know if I'm missing any other forms. I have the petition, mothers consent, biological fathers consent.
I do not have the childs consent for those kids 14 and older.
I called the law library, but the book they believe this is from is checked out and I haven't been able to find another copy.
So ... my questions ...
Does anyone have a copy of the book KS Law & Practice, KS Family Law Volume 1 (Elrod) that can look this up and possible fax me a copy of these other pages.
OR
Does anyone have a copy of this petition that they have in soft copy that they can email so I can get this final section ?
The last paragraph on page 365 says:
WHEREFORE: the petitioner asks that he be permitted and authorized to adopt said minor child as his own; that proper final decree be made and entered by this Court for the adoption of said minor child by ..............
ALSO - Does anyone have a copy of the Child's Consent form?
Please email me and let me know if you can help me out.
Thanks a lot!

I do not have the info you were asking about but i do have a question. How did you get a hold of the packet?
::confused:
Do you have to call and request one or what do i need to do to get the adoption of my daughter started? I was hoping to get it started before my husband was deployed. We are in Fort Riley so any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

I don't have the law book,but I went to the court house and copied that section so I know I have the pages that were applicable to my adoption. I have pages 366 and 367--I assume it's from the same book? 366 says
"the petitioner; that the name of said minor child upon adoption by petitioner be changed to [name of adopted child].
________________
Name of Petitioner"
Then there is the section to have it notarized right under that. Page 367 is the first page of a form for New Baby (out of wedlock) adoption petition so I don't think you need that.
I also have the petition I used for my children's adoption and I'm happy to send that to you. I don't have child's consent form because my kids are younger than 14.
let me know if you want me to send you the petition or the actual pages from the book.

I am looking for all of the forms needed for a step parent adoption. I went to an attorney and they aare wanting 1500.00 for the adoption. I know that I can do it myself if I just knew where to get the paperwork. My court house will not give out the forms. does anyone know where I can get them that is not going to cost a lot

I would suggest trying maybe to find a lawyer online that practices in this area. There are alot of per diem lawyers that will do work based on the hour so if you only need a motion drafted or something hopefully a couple of hundred bucks.
Below is a list of some attorneys that practice in this area that I have found online. Maybe shoot them an email or call. [url=http://www.legaladvice.com/attorney/category/Adoption-Law-5]Find a Lawyer Search Results[/url]
