Are You In A Same-Sex Marriage And Looking To Adopt?
Many same-sex couples want to take the natural, next step: starting a family together. In some cases, one partner is already the parent of a child from a previous relationship or marriage. Other types of adoption start with the child being conceived via assisted reproduction, including surrogacy or sperm donation.
Issues surrounding same-sex adoption are emotionally charged, especially when a relationship between a couple ends. Without formally adopting as a “second parent,” contact and interaction with a child presents challenges following the separation.
At the Law Office of Dawn M. Green, we believe in the same-sex rights of nonbiological parents. They can serve as nurturing and supportive parental figures, during a relationship and following a divorce. A second-parent adoption not only solidifies a relationship between a parent and child, but it also preserves parental rights to child support, child custody and visitation.
