Stepparent Adoptions in Florida

The noncustodial biological parent is released from all financial and parental responsibilities and the adoptive stepparent becomes the legal parent, obtains custody rights and assumes legal responsibilities.

The stepparent adoption process in Florida is relatively quick, easy and inexpensive. In Florida, no report, recommendation or home study is required for a stepparent adoption. The Florida legal system does not require background checks or clearances for stepparent adoptions. There is also no waiting period for a stepparent adoption.

Fort Lauderdale adoption attorney Rebekah Brown-Wiseman is experienced in termination of parental rights (TPR) cases. Prior to her private legal work, she represented the state of Florida as a Department of Children and Families attorney in termination of parental rights cases and worked as a guardian ad litem program attorney.

Attorney Brown-Wiseman will petition the court for the termination of the other biological parent’s rights and for the stepparent adoption. The adoption lawyer will either obtain the written consent of the other biological parent or seek a ruling from the court to terminate parental rights of the other biological parent. Florida’s unique process for stepparent adoption permits the adoption hearing to be held in the same court hearing as the termination of parental rights matter, if desired to expedite your stepparent adoption.
