MISSISSIPPI ADOPTION LAWS
Nevertheless, when we say adoption applications get “support” in Mississippi, it is not to imply that the rights or interest of the adoptee are compromised in any way. In fact, the state has a few rigid conditions in place to make sure any kind of abuse is completely avoided.

STEP PARENT ADOPTION IN MISSISSIPPI
An application for step parent adoption in Mississippi has its liberties but also some limitations. For instance, while a person applying for step parent adoption in Mississippi is only required to have lived for only three months before the petition is filed (and even that can be waived by the court), same-sex couples cannot apply for any kind of child adoption in Mississippi. While a lot of states are making it legal for members of the LGBT community to adopt, some are still not open to the idea.
Another important requirement for step parent adoption in Mississippi is for your stepchild to live for a period of six months in your house prior to the occasion of petition filing. While the court may waive this condition, you should keep it in mind.
Child adoption in Mississippi is also done for foster parents through state organized agencies and placements. In such cases as well as those of step parent adoption, the adoptee must provide written consent to the petition that must be submitted to the court with your forms if they are of 14 years of age or older.
ADULT ADOPTION IN MISSISSIPPI
Adult adoption in Mississippi has some of the same conditions as child adoption, except, in this case, no agency is usually used for a placement. In fact, most cases of adult adoption are initiated when there is already some kind of a relationship between the applicant and the adoptee. A most common case of such adoption is relative adoption in Mississippi where the applicant is trying to legally adopt an elderly relative, like a grandparent or uncle who may be in need of the kind of care and love only family can provide.
For adult adoption in Mississippi to succeed, be it an unrelated adult or a case of relative adoption in Mississippi, the adoptee’s consent must be taken as well as your spouse’s (if you are married).
