- Q. Can my ex legal become my son's father without me having to marry him?
- A: It is nice that you are considering your son's well-being over your self-interest. Lawyers don't see that too often. You have a couple options. The best is to have this man adopt your son. We will need to locate the biological father to sign off on the adoption. There are other options if you don't know his location. It adds a bit to the cost though. The following people have to sign the papers: You, the biological father if we can find him, the new dad, and even your son. In Arkansas, a child ten or over has to consent. Sort of nice isn't it? You don't have to get married to anyone for this to happen Here is what you should expect in the way of fees: Filing fee: 187.50 Lawyer fees: $3000.00 Additional fees if we can't locate the biological father: 1200.00 Thank you.
