LGBTQ Adoption Services in Florida
Because the right for an LGBTQ individual to marry and start a family was only recently recognized, the decades-old regulatory systems for domestic relations issues can present challenging legal problems for LGBTQ couples when it comes to adopting children. Thankfully, our skilled Florida adoption attorneys have the training to identify and address those legal issues effectively.
Generally, the following three types of adoptions are available to LGBT couples:
- Joint adoption by a married couple. Joint adoption refers to the process where a same-sex couple adopts a child together.
- Single adoption by an LGBTQ parent. This type of adoption refers to a process where a single LGBTQ individual wants to adopt a child, either through a private adoption agency or Florida’s Department of Children and Families (DCF).
- Second parent adoption. Second parent adoption describes a process where a same-sex individual adopts their same-sex partner or spouse’s biological child.
