Adoption Information

The transfer of a child from one set of parents to another is bound to have challenges because it is a legal exchange. At the conclusion of a successful adoption, the new parents have gained complete legal custody of the child. The child's relationship with the biological parents typically ends at the final signing of the adoption.

The biological parents are not required to have physical contact with the child ever again. An open adoption can be conducted if communication is preferred. The biological parent or parents may retain the right to communicate with the child after the divorce has concluded.

The Legal Right to Adopt in Florida

Any adult that the court determines to have the ability to be a responsible parent can adopt. The court bases this determination on the moral character of the individual wishing to adopt and his or her emotional ability to properly parent a child. The individual or couple wishing to adopt must have substantial financial resources to retain the ability to adopt.

The ability to be a strong and loving parent is the primary considerations made by the court on this matter. If you wish to have assistance through this process, I can help you in a variety of legal ways.

Call today. I am a board-certified attorney with the passion and ability to help you work through your situation. I can be your guide through this process.
