Complete your Family with Same Sex Adoption in South Florida


With the holiday season well underway, you’re getting things in order to fully celebrate the holidays. You may have your tree set up, decked out in lights and filled with presents. Or, your menorah has proudly lit your living room for each night of Chanukah. Whether you’re celebrating these holidays, preparing for the new year or if you’re just enjoying the festive times of the holiday season, there still may be one thing missing from your celebrations. At Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL, we know that many homes in South Florida are waiting to be complete with the blessing of children. But, many couples have issues successfully pursuing same sex adoption or surrogacy in South Florida. Our team at Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL specializes in many aspects of LGBT family law in South Florida, and we’re here to help you complete your family through adoption and surrogacy.

In June of 2015, HB 7013 was signed by Governor Rick Scott, finally putting an end to a nearly 40-year ban on same sex adoption. Now that there are no laws banning same sex adoption in South Florida, families are finally working to complete their homes. At Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL, we’re here to provide assistance with the adoption processes. This is because like all types of LGBT family law in South Florida, same sex adoption can be incredibly complex.

Many families looking to adopt work through the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF). The processes within DCF no longer discriminate against same sex couples looking to adopt, but it can still be an uphill battle getting the results your family desires. This is why it’s important to work with an attorney that understands how highly emotionally charged your same sex adoption situation can be. Our attorneys at Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL are here to help.

In other cases, same sex adoption is about a stepparent adopting the child of their spouse. This type of same sex adoption is incredibly common for many LGBT couples. In stepparent adoption, the biological parent still retains all their childcare rights and the non-biological parent is able to become a full legal parent as well.

Same sex adoption in South Florida can seem like a daunting process, but our team at Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL knows it can be an incredibly rewarding journey. Whether you’re looking to adopt with your partner, or you’re looking to adopt your partner’s child, or to use the services of a surrogate to help two men create their family dream, our attorneys are here to help. You can speak with a lawyer from our office by calling (954) 344-7737 to learn about all the services we offer for successful pursuits of LGBT family law in South Florida.
