How is an adoption legalized?
Under Florida law, any individual can be legally adopted. If a child is
12 years of age or older, his or her consent is needed, unless the court
dispenses of this with the best interests of the child in mind.
Other parties that must provide proper written consent for adoption include:
- The birth mother
- The birth father
- Any person lawfully entitled to custody of the minor
Adoptive parents are not eligible to finalize their adoption until 90 days
after placement of the child in their home or 30 days after the judgment
terminating parental rights (whichever occurs later).
