Tampa Second Parent Adoption
Through second parent adoption, a parental figure who lives in the home can legally adopt a child, even if he or she isn’t married to the legal or biological parent. This option is often a good solution for gay and lesbian couples as well as in cases involving surrogacy and egg donation.
The attorneys at Almeida & Gordy, P.A., provide strong, dedicated advocacy for couples who need a second parent adoption. We are able to serve clients through our offices in Tampa and Orlando, Florida.
From our Tampa office, we can handle all aspects of a second parent adoption, including termination of a biological parent’s parental rights. Other steps need to be taken before securing the second parent adoption, including a home study, background checks and other measures to ensure the child’s safety. After these steps are completed, we also can guide you through filing a petition with the court and represent you in the final court hearing.
