***Florida’s Gay Adoption Ban Lifted***

On September 22, 2010, the Third District Court of Appeals decided the case of Martin Gill’s petition to adopt his foster children, and effectively lifted the 20th century ban on gay adoption in the State of Florida.

This ruling applies throughout the State of Florida, and means that any qualified individual or couple can apply to adopt a child in Florida, regardless of their sexual orientation.  Same-sex couples can seek to adopt in what is known as a two-parent adoption, and the partners of gay or lesbian parents can apply for a second parent adoption, to get legal recognition of their role in parenting.

Are you LGBT and thinking of adoption a child?  Contact the Law Offices of Armenteros & Miller, P.A. at (305) 758-2020, and speak with either Attorney Jake Miller or Attorney Cecilia Armenteros for more information.
