Why Hire Our Firm

Ending Parental Rights

Florida will not recognize an adoption until the stepparent can prove that is in the child's best interest to end the relationship with the other biological parent. The biological parent can consent to give up the child for adoption, or the court may see a need to place the child in the custody of another adult.

If the court finalizes the judgement terminating the biological parent's rights to the child, the stepparents are then capable of proceeding with the adoption. The stepparent can also take action by getting legal aid that could simultaneously end the biological parent's rights and finalize an adoption. If the child is 12 or older, then the court may require their consent for the adoption to take place as well.
