Question: When my dad gets remarried will she be my stepmother even if iam a adult of 21 yares old or is this just a term

Answer: Your father’s new wife would be considered by the law as your stepmother. Some areas of law, such as trusts and real estate rentals, include stepparents as members of your family. However, the significance of stepparents in Arizona generally involves matters relating to minor children. As you are considered an adult under Arizona law, the relation of your dad’s new wife as your stepmother should not affect you, as she is not legally your “parent.” An exception arises if she were to adopt you – then you would legally be her child.
