PETITION FOR ADOPTION BY STEPPARENT (NON-ICWA)
8.    All the following persons whose consents are required by Alaska Statute
      25.23.040 have consented to this adoption:
            Yes
      a.             my spouse, who is the child's biological                 mother          father

      b.             the child's other parent:                           , unless that parent
                     is deceased. (      A certified copy of the death certificate is attached.)

      c.             the child, if the child is age 10 or older.            (Submit an unsigned
                     consent form for the child.)

      d.             any other person who is lawfully entitled to custody of the child or
                     empowered to consent. Person's name:                               .

      e.             the child's spouse, if the child is married.           The child is not married.

      Consent forms from each of the above persons accompany this petition. All the
      consents have been signed except the child's. I understand that the child's
      consent must be submitted unsigned because it must be signed in the presence
      of the judge.

9.    Along with this petition, I am filing the following:
      a.     a certified copy of the child's birth certificate (or verification of the birth record),
      b.     a filled out form VS-550, Descriptive Information Regarding Biological Parents,
      c.     a filled-out form VS-501, Report of Adoption, and
      d.     the required consents.

10.   The child is not a member of an Indian tribe or an Alaska Native Village. In
      addition, the child is not eligible for such membership, and neither of the child's
      biological parents is a member of an Indian tribe or an Alaska Native Village.

11.   I believe that this adoption is in the best interests of this child.

12.   Inheritance from the Parent Giving Up the Child.

      My spouse and the parent giving up the child are the biological parents of the
      child. Therefore, under AS 13.12.114(b), the child's right to inherit from and
      through both biological parents is not affected by the adoption.

13.   Visitation After The Adoption. AS 25.23.130.

      The parent giving up the child has requested that he/she/other relative
         will       will not retain visitation rights with the child following the adoption,
      as specified in that parent's consent. I agree with this request.
