I'd apply the law in the state where this took place.Normally, an adoption cannot be overturned.When the birth mother let her partner legally adopt the child, she forfeited her rights to sole custody. If I were the judge, I would:a) Grant primary custody to the woman who adopted the kid. b) Grant visitation to the birth mother, provided she paid child support. No more than 1 weekend a month to have the kid alone, and two weeks during the summer. She blew it when she allowed the child to be adopted by her partner. If she had intended to support the child, she never would have allowed an adoption. It was a 'dereliction of duty' and she forfeited most parental rights including custody. c) Tell the father he has no obligations to the child since the child has been adopted. however, if he wants visitation, he will be required to pay child support to the person who legally adopted this child. Simple. t
