Types of Adoption Cases We Handle
Myrthil’s Law, P.A. assists in many types of familial adoptions in Florida, including:
1. Grandparent and Relative Adoptions
Love and care are crucial to ensure that a child grows with healthy emotional and physical well-being. In cases when a parent is not capable, the interest of the child can best be served with a relative adoption.
A relative adoption will legally and permanently ensure the relationship between children and their relatives—grandparents, aunt, or uncle. The relative will have the same rights as a parent, including the right to all decision-making regarding the child’s welfare.
Myrthil’s Law, P. A. assists in many cases of relative adoptions where the driving reason was child abuse, teenage pregnancy, abandonment, death of a parent, mental health concern, substance abuse, incarceration, child neglect, or financial issues.
2. Stepparent Adoptions
Blended families are quite common and for some families, seeking full legal rights and responsibilities for the stepchild is the next step in making their family whole. This is achieved through stepparent adoption.
Stepparent adoption is a formal legal process that allows a stepparent to become a legal guardian of the child with the same rights and responsibilities as a biological parent. In order for a stepparent to be eligible to adopt their stepchild, either one of the biological parents must have passed away, is no longer in the picture, or is willing to absolve their own parental rights.
