Whether you are considering an adoption involving an infant or an older child, there are numerous tasks which must be accomplished before you officially become a parent. To even begin these proceedings, section 19-8-3 of the Georgia Code requires the following:

  • You must be at least 25 years of age or married and living with your spouse;
  • You must be at least ten years older than the child;
  • You must have been a bona fide resident of the state for the preceding six months;
  • You must be physically, emotionally, and financially able to have permanent custody of the child;
  • If you are married, your spouse must also be listed on the petition for adoption unless the child is your step-child. Then only you need to file the petition.
