Adopting my step son. Birth mother has not seen him in 7 months. Has only 2 hours of supervised visitation 1 day a week.

Q:  Says she hasn't see him because her probation officer wont let he. Ever though she showed him court papers for when she could see him. She had to do some class for probation. That ended in Oct. still hasn't tried to see him. Hasn't been going to visits on a reguler bases from the beginning. Has gone weeks and months before. I would love to adopt him.

A:  David's Answer:  One would think the adoption Judge would find that she has "legally abandoned" the child by failing to maintain substantial contact for a period of longer than 6 months. Speak to a Family Law attorney in your area. -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (www.blivenlaw.net)
