    all states have own laws on this. First, there has to be an age difference to adopt. For example, wisconsin says you MUST be 15 or more years older than child you adopt. Some states allow adult adoptions and some don't. Adult adoptions are usually for purposes of inheritance or when an adult has no family and becomes close with older adults who think of her/him as their child.

    There is no reason to adopt a person over 18 because they are a legal adult.

    In this day and age that is not going to happen. Why attempt to tie up the court with such stuff. The court is too busy as it is with crucial issues.
