Adopting an Adult Is Easier Than Adopting a Child

attorney in MuskogeeVideo Transcribed: Can adults be adopted in Oklahoma? Hi, I’m Eric L. Strocen, I’m an attorney in Muskogee with the Wirth Law Office, and I’m here to explain. The answer to that question is yes. Yes, they may.

Usually, it’s not as complicated as when it comes to children. The court does have the power under the statute to order some kind of investigation, some background investigation to make sure that there are no fraudulent purposes for the adoption.

Adoption in Muskogee is important legally because it goes to not only decision-making power, but it goes to your rights as an heir under the statutes when someone does die with the will.

So it’s an important estate planning mechanism that you may need, depending on the relationship you’ve developed with someone who wasn’t necessarily birth to you. Please, you’re more than welcome to talk to me about your situation confidentially. Reach out and give us a call or visit us online at
