Consult an Attorney When Trying to Adopt
Video Transcribed: Where is the proper jurisdiction for an adult adoption in Oklahoma? I’m Tulsa Adoption Attorney James Wirth, and we’re talking about a lot of issues related to adult adoption. And this question has to do with where is jurisdiction is proper.
Where does the paperwork need to be filed? And it is actually, unusually, it’s not going to be filed in the county where the person being adopted resides, it’s actually the county where the person adopting is residing.
That’s the proper jurisdiction under Oklahoma law, and that is laid out in Title 10 Section 7505-1.1. So that is the proper place to file. But if you’re looking at filing, you’re going to want a consultation with an attorney regarding your specifics to see if this is the best option for you.
