step child adoption in NC 8 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 0  
What would be the process for my husband to adopt my daughter? Her biological father has never paid support and has not had contact with her since she was 10 months old (now almost 8 years). Is this a process we can handle on our own or does it require a lawyer?

Was the biological father named of the death certificate? If not, then you need to petition the probate court to add step father's name to the birth certificiate and provide notice to the biological father.

If the biological father was listed on the birth certificate, then he will need to formally adopt your daughter. This will likely require that you retain an attorney as adoption can be complicated and take a lot of time.
