Stepparent Adoption Information
Looking Into Adopting as a Stepparent?
When people have had children in a previous relationship, then marry someone else, the wife or husband of that child's parent becomes their stepparent.
Depending on the dynamics of the relationship, stepparents can play a significant role in the child's life, especially if the parent that was replaced is no longer there for them.
Sometimes, the stepparent may even decide to legally adopt the child as their own and take on the full parental responsibility for them. This is called a stepparent adoption.
Are you interested in taking on a bigger role in your step child's life? Then, it's time to make those dreams a reality.
What's The Process?
In the state of Florida, the first step to stepparent adoption is to discover if they're eligible to adopt. This requires a person to be able to parent and be married to the other parent of the child.
From there, many variables often come into play that can affect your next steps.
Towards the end of the process, if approved a judge will confirm the adoption. A lawyer experienced in stepparent adoption can help the process go more smoothly.
