How Does Adoption Work in Florida?

Similar to the adoption process in all other 49 states, adoption in Florida is both legally complex and highly-detailed. A number of factors can change how your adoption case plays out, such as whether you choose to work with a public or a private adoption agency, the age and status of the adoptee, whether you want an open or closed adoption, and more.

Who is Allowed to be Adopted?

According to Code Sections 63.022-63.301 anyone may be adopted. As of 2014, children 12 years of age or older must consent to adoption unless the court rules that adoption is in the best interest of the child.

Who is Allowed to Adopt?

Other than being an adult (21-years-old or older), Florida has few requirements for prospective adoptive parents. Unmarried individuals may adopt, as may married couples, regardless of sexual orientation. However, certain felony convictions (such as child abuse) may prevent an individual from adopting.

Is Adoption Instant?

The adoption process requires a fair amount of time to complete. Prospective adoptive parents must complete a variety of tasks and requirements, such as passing a home study to ensure their household is prepared for the adoptee, and submitting a variety of documents to adoption professionals. Additionally, there is a required 90-day home residency that must take place before adoption can be finalized and a one-year period where the statue of limitations may be challenged.

Do I Need an Attorney?

The adoption process can be highly-intimidating and difficult. If you or someone you know is interested in adoption, contact Taylor & Waldrop Attorneys for more information and for help through the adoption process.
