Adoption occurs when an adult assumes, through a formal court proceeding, legal and all other responsibilities for a child, creating a permanent parent-child relationship.

The Alaska Court System has court forms for adoption by a stepparent. These forms can be used when the mother, the father and the stepparent all agree to the adoption.

If you are not the child's stepparent, you will need to consult with an attorney to file a case.
