Stepparent Adoption Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Orlando Step-parent Adoption Attorney

Compassionate & Comprehensive Representation

Stepparents aren’t granted automatic legal rights over their stepchildren, and obtaining these legal rights can be challenging--particularly if your child’s birth parent refuses to relinquish his or her parental rights. This is why it is important you enlist the services of our Orlando stepparent adoption lawyers of The Virga Law Firm, P.A. We will explore the complexities of your case and determine the best course of action to get you the ideal results in your journey of earning legal parental rights over your stepchild.

Becoming legally responsible for your stepchild can be done in a number of unique circumstances. The state of Florida dictates one of the following must be true before you can hope to successfully adopt your stepchild:

  • Your stepchild’s birth parent is deceased
  • Your stepchild’s birth parent cannot be found
  • Your stepchild’s birth parent has abandoned his or her child
  • Your stepchild’s birth parent has agreed to surrender his or her parental rights

It can be frustrating to be denied these intrinsic rights as a stepparent, especially if you have been in the child’s life for a significant amount of time or you feel as though you fulfill the role of a parent far more than your stepchild’s birth parent. It is vital you don’t give up hope despite the trials and tribulation you will undoubtedly have to overcome in this process.
