I want to adopt my niece who has lived with me for more than 5 years. I am her temporary custodian . How do I legally adopt her?
County government employees are not attorneys and therefore prohibited from providing information that could be construed as legal advice. Your questions are better answered by an attorney who is aware of the laws and court requirements concerning adoption. If the financial responsibility of procuring an attorney is onerous, the Kansas Legal Services could be a resource for you. You may contact them by calling 1/800-723-6953, a toll free number, to see if they can be of service to you.
