Strict compliance with statute required in adoption – published opinion from Ky Court of Appeals

Bookcase

S.B.P. v. R.L. and M.L.

Biological Father, a federal inmate, of minor child, challenged judgment of adoption entered by Trial Court. The case was initiated by a petition filed by Child’s Maternal great-grandparents seeking involuntary termination of Father’s parental rights and voluntary termination of Mother’s rights. The petition was later amended to add a prayer for adoption. The minor child was not named as a party in the adoption action, there was no evidence that the GAL appointed to represent the Child was served with the petition, and the Cabinet did not conduct an investigation nor file a report as required by KRS 199, the statute governing adoption proceedings

The Court of Appeals found that Child’s great-grandparents were not one of the five entities specifically authorized by KRS 625.050(3) to file a TPR petition and, thus, the petition should have been dismissed. The Court of Appeals also found that great-grandparents did not strictly comply with KRS 199, rendering the adoption invalid.
