The Florida Adoption Process

Adoptions, while joyous occasions, can also be frightening and intimidating. If any paperwork is completed incorrectly or even one deadline is missed, it can throw the entire process into disarray. An experienced attorney, however, can ensure that everything is completed efficiently and on time.

My firm is prepared to represent clients throughout central Florida who are facing a broad range of adoption issues, including:

  • Agency adoptions
  • International adoptions
  • Independent adoptions
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Open or closed adoptions
  • Private adoptions

To be eligible for adopting a child, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be a legal adult
  • Must complete a home study
  • Must complete the proper adoption paperwork

A home study is when an adoption agent visits prospective adopters’ homes and conducts interviews with each member of the household. The agent does this to understand why an individual or family is looking to adopt and ensure the home is a safe environment for prospective children.

Termination of Parental Rights

One of the more complicated aspects of some adoptions is seeking the termination of parental rights from one or both biological parents. This is a legal agreement that the parent relinquishes all rights as they pertain to the child and his or her upbringing. There are some challenges, here, such as attempting to find the parent, or the parent simply does not want to hand over control. No matter the complexity or sensitive nature of the proceedings, my firm will stand by your side and fight for your best interests.
