Adoption Laws In Florida  -  Things You Need to Remember

Just like adoption laws in any other state, the laws are pretty much strict in Florida. You won’t find any court takes the case of adoption lightly. After all, the risk of child’s whole life is involved in any adoption case. The court has the responsibility to conduct an entire investigation on prospective parents and their lives. The court only has one aim, the best interests of the child.

So, for this reason, the state has composed strict adoption laws Florida.

This article has been devised to several most frequently asked questions related to adoption laws Florida. These questions are usually asked but rarely answered for the general public. But the answers will be found here.

Who can adopt the child? Apologies, this question is often asked and answered. But what people are unaware of persons who are actually not eligible for adoption. A single adult or couple who is married, sufficiently stable to provide shelter with good lifestyle is eligible to apply for adoption. But gay couples are not allowed to file for adoption. However, LGBT singles can also apply for adoption.

Often, child’s living in the foster home have zero knowledge about their real parents. For adoption, the consent of real parents is highly required. To find a real parent, don’t ever try to advertise. If you do so, you will face major legal risks.

Individuals mostly asked about using the services of paid attorneys or agencies. In that case, search for attorneys as well as agencies who have licensed to charge for such services. Otherwise, you have to avoid that.

People at all times get confused about the timing of consent signing. If a child is younger than six months, the birth mother may sign the consent after forty-eight hours of birth or discharge from the hospital. Whichever the event is earlier. In the case of a father, after birth, he can sign non-paternity affidavit anytime. In case the child is six months old, both parents can sign papers for surrendering paternal rights.

Can consent be revoked? Another vital question! Well, once the paternity rights have been surrendered, the decision is irrevocable. There is one exception to that case. If there is an intention of fraud from another party, the adoption may be revoked if fraud gets proved.

Child adoption procedure takes some time. And a number of people have no idea how much it takes. Once the biological parents have surrendered the rights or the court has terminated the paternal rights. The placement of the child will be finalized. Within sixty days of termination, adoptive parents should file a petition with the clerk of the court. Keep one thing in your mind that after petition, it will take ninety days for the final verdict since termination. Ensure to give essential documents and evidence to have a verdict in favor of you.

Do social workers and other agencies continue the home study after placement? A majority of people doesn’t know that even after placement of the child in an adoptive home. The Social workers as well as other Govt authorized child adoption agencies continue the duty or searching for the adoptive home. They ensure everything goes in interests of the adopted child by making occasionally visits and counseling.

One thing is quite sure from all the questions and answers, in this whole adoption process. The child is the center point of everything. Whatever will be happening, it is going to be advantageous for the child.
