Hi All

I have been granted the orders to dispense with the birth fathers consent to my step sons adoption(on the grounds that he is deceased), but I have been advised that I need to give "Notice" of my intent to adopt to all of the deceased fathers "close family".
This isn't an issue as they are already aware as I have told them verbally.
That said Is there a standard form to give them the "Notice" officially?

Any of your input most welcome.

A certified letter notifying your intent should be sufficient, keep a copy of each letter sent as proof if required.

This is good to know. I thought telling people verbally was sufficient for this kind of stuff. Who might request to see the letters as a proof down the line though?

Not a case of who might ask for it, more a case of someone you told saying you didn't tell them, being able to prove you did will ensure this never happens.
