Married same-sex couples in Florida can now have both of them listed on birth certificates of their children, according to an announcement by the Department of Health. However, the document will inaccurately categorize the parents as "mother" and "father."
It isn't uncommon for birth mothers to feel anxious and uncertain about deciding which path to take regarding the adoption of their child.
Not every divorcing couple wants to-or should-go through a long drawn out process in court, litigating their issues in front of a judge and the public. Some couples simply want to resolve matters on their own in a less hostile-and more affordable-manner.
Florida LGBT couples who are considering adoption may want to know what to expect from the process. It can be very long and complicated, but the end result is worthwhile.
