Can a Child Be Adopted by an Uncle?

In rhode island is it possible for a child to be adopted by an uncle, grandparent or other male relative when Childs father has never bothered with them in 6 years and never paid a dime. If he gives all rights away is it possible an uncle or other relative adopt her?

The adoption process in RI is quite gratifying for all parties involved. The judges treat is almost like a ceremony. If all parties are in agreement, then an attorney with experience in the area should be able to guide you though the process. Good luck.
