Residency in South Dakota:
You must be a resident of the State of South Dakota for 6 months prior to filing your adoption. The adoption is filed with the Probate Court in the county where you reside.
Consent of Absent Parent:
Most of the adoptions we help families complete are not able to get the consent of the absent parent. The adoption can be completed without the absent parent's consent if that parent has abandoned the child. Abandonment is when the other parent has not any substantial contact for the past 12 months.
Consent of child:
In South Dakota, if the child is 14 years or older, the child will sign a consent to adoption.
When absent parent's whereabouts or identity are unknown:
It is fairly common that the absent parent's whereabouts are unknown. It is also fairly common that the biological father's identity is unknown. In both situations, you can still complete the stepparent adoption.
Stepparent Adoption in South Dakota:
No matter what your situation may be, we have the experience to help you complete your adoption. A stepparent adoption in South Dakota takes approximately 3 months to be final. Once completed, the child will receive a new birth certificate showing the child's new name and the new parent.
Adult Adoption in South Dakota:
Adult adoptions in South Dakota are very simple. As an adult, the adoptee can decide on their own that they want to be adopted, and they don't need the consent of the biological parent. An adult adoption can be finalized as soon as 45-60 days.
South Dakota courts approve our adoption forms. You can file with confidence.
THE ADOPTION PROCESS IN SOUTH DAKOTA
The court wants the child to have the unity and security of a two-parent home, and when the absent parent is not active in the child’s life, then the court will do the adoption without the consent of the other parent. If the other parent is willing to sign a consent, that will make the adoption easier, but if the absent parent has abandoned the child, then you can do the adoption without the father’s consent.
