Can someone who has a drug conviction in their past adopt a child in the state of Texas I am married own my own home and am drug free for 4 years now?
Adoption in America is so hard, it takes forever, some people wait two years or more. They put you through the ringer and then some. I would see what the application asks for, if you werent ever arrested or have any medical history of drug use, on paper, I wouldn't tell them, its none of there business. You are drug free now and that is what counts, congratulations and keep up the "great" work. Sorry I must have been brain cramping. Your question did mention a conviction. Anyway, give it your best shot and check around to quite a few agency, some may be more lienent then others. Good luck.

At what age can you leave home if your adoptive mom is gay and has had trouble in the past with the law and drugs?
Answer . Unless you have been emancipated, you cannot leave home without parental consent until you reach the age of majority (in most states the age of majority is 18, bu…t in a few states it's higher). Her being your adoptive mom is irrelevant, as is her being gay. As far as the drug problems, from the way you worded the question it appears that you're talking about drug problems in the PAST rather than the present. Lots of people have had drug problems in their past, but then cleaned up their lives. If she's CURRENTLY using drugs then I'd urge you to discuss the situation with a school counselor. If you are in a dangerous or unsafe environment, then you need to report it immediately.
Can you adopt a child in North Carolina if over 20 years ago you were convicted of a felony for drugs?

In Alabama, being convicted of a violent crime automatically disqualifies one from owning a firearm, as does being "a drug addict". Whether a felony drug conviction fulfills e…ither of these criteria is beyond the scope of this website to authoritatively tell you.
If that is a felonly, no you can't.
Probably not. Federal law prohibits felons from possessing firearms. Some states, like Washington, may allow it; but even they usually do not allow persons with violent feloni…es or drug related felonies to possess a firearm.
You will need to consult a lawyer. It is possible to have your Second Amendment right restored, but, it is not easy.
The very short answer is, yes. A person living with a felon can own a gun as long as that person isn't otherwise disqualified. To be completely legal, the felon must have abso…lutely no possible access to the gun. A gun in the household with a felon however, is a sticky situation. Even if you are technically legal, it could cause problems.
Persons that are "unlawful users of, or addicted to controlled drugs" are prohibited by Federal law from purchasing firearms. In general, a SINGLE misdemeanor conviction for p…ossession or marijuana may not be a disqualifier. Multiple convictions are more likely to disqualify you. You may want to check with the firearms section of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This is the Federal agency that regulates firearms. You can find their website under ATF.gov.
The general answer is yes, the spouse of a felon can owna gun as long as the felon has no access to it.
The general answer is no, but it is possible, sometimes, to have your gun rights restored. Check with a local attorney for more information.
No a felon owning a gun is a violation of the law and is possibly endangering the public. It doesn't matter if the person is nonviolent, what matters is that the person is a f…elon. Once a felony is on a persons record it never comes off.
There are two issues here- first, the felony, second, the drugs. Each on its own can disqualify a person from legally possessing a firearm. A convicted felon MAY petition for …restoration of civil rights, including firearms, but that process varies from state to state. Until that is done, a felon may not possess a firearm. Please seek legal advice from a real attorney in order to get current accurate information- this is a very serious matter.

Can you own a handgun in your own home if you have a son who was convicted of a felony and was in prison for more and one year and now he lives in your home?
Well, yeah, I guess, but I would definitely suggest you keep it away from your son... Added: If you are otherwise lawfully qualified there is no prohibiton against YOUR ow…ning or possessing a firearm. HOWEVER, the law prohibits YOUR SON from being anywhere he may have access to a firearm. It makes no difference WHERE you keep it in the residence, even if you claim it is locked in a safe. It is referred to in the law as "concurrent possession." If you wish to have your son reside with you, and keep him out of trouble with the law, you will have to make arrangements to keep your firearm somewhere else than in your home or anywhere else he may be around it. Expounded on the previous answer: There is also what is known at "constructive possession" which is different than concurrent possession, both of which MAY be defined differently in different jurisdictions. Generally speaking, constructive possession means the person has access and intent to possess the item. In SOME jurisdictions, a felon may reside in the same house where a firearm is present, as long as the felon does not have feasible access to it. However, having said that, it is not normally a good idea, because of the concurrent possession law.

Can you purchase a handgun for home defense in Texas even if you have a conviction for a drug charge?
If you have given birth to a child, you are by default their legal guardian. If you have given them up for adoption, you have given up your legal rights to that child. In that… case it is difficult to regain those rights without talking to the foster parents and negotiating some kind of deal. You cannot, however "adopt" your child in this case because it will be referred to as "restitution of legal rights" or something like that.
