Adoptions
 
  A.   Notice Requirements
         
      Notice of the final adoption hearing must be provided to both natural parents, even if a natural parent has consented to the adoption, except as otherwise provided by Kansas statute.
         
  B.   Assessment, Investigation and Report
         
      The assessment, investigation and report are not required by statute for step-parent adoptions, per K.S.A. 59-2132. However, an assessment, investigation and report may be desired by the Court in a step-parent adoption, depending on the circumstances. Check with the district judge assigned to the case to determine if the report will be required.
