Second Parent Adoption Update

An Update may be filed if the child was previously adopted through
the Summit County Probate Court and your home study is current.


Representation by an Attorney is mandatory unless Form 18.3 – Consent to Adoption and Form AD.7 – Addendum to Consent have been obtained from the non-custodial parent.  Because of Ohio Law and the complexity of the process use of an attorney is recommended.  It is important to note that the Court cannot give any legal advice so you should consult with an attorney with any legal questions.
