About the Adoption Process in Florida

Adoption is legally defined as the process where a child becomes, through action of the court, a member of a family other than that of their birth parents. Since adopting a child is an extremely serious matter, the court will take an in-depth look at the potential parents and see if they can effectively carry out their responsibilities for their new child.

What Are The Requirements for Adoption?

To be eligible to adopt a child in Florida, you must be:

  • An adult who works and lives in the state,
  • Who is a good person,
  • And who has the ability to provide for and nurture a child.

Single adults, married couples, stepparents, gay individuals and couples, and others are all eligible to adopt. In order for the adoption process to go through, certain individuals first need to consent to the adoption, including the birth mother, the birth father under certain circumstances, the minor under certain circumstances, any person who has legal custody of the minor, and the court under certain circumstances.
