A: Tina: DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A LAWYER or ATTORNEY. I am someone who has experience in family law issues, and am sharing my OPINION only. For the exact law as it pertains to your specific case contact a Professional Attorney in your county. I recommend that you hire a Professional Attorney to assist you in this matter: You will need to file the following or similar type documents: - Petition court for Modification of Parenting Plan: Changing visitation schedule. - Petition court for notification of Relocation: You will need to ensure Dad gets a copy of all this paper work. New Florida Laws: F.S. 61.13001(1) provides definitions [a cornucopia of thought provoking information] while F.S. 61.13001(2) establishes the criteria parents, who sign a written agreement to relocate a

Q: 

stepparent adoption

A: Hi Angela, the facts as you have described them would constitute abandonment so you would not necessarily have to have the biological father"s consent to the adoption, however, you will need to located him and serve him with notice of the adoption. If you do not know his location Florida statutes require you to perform a diligent search with inquiry to specific individuals and institutions. You will be required to track down each new address located with the same diligence as the first until such time as you find him or reach a dead end with each new address obtained. This can be daunting and time consuming but is absolutely required and if not done properly the natural father can reappear and set the adoption aside...


Q: 

relocation-adoption-custody

A: Hi Gisela, if your Former Husband still has parental rights, sole parental responsibility does not effect these rights, then he is entitled to timesharing with the child. With regard to the step parent adoption your former husband will need to consent to the adoption or the court must find that he has abandoned the child, as that term is defined under Florida statutes. Finally as to a proposed relocation you should review Florida Statue 61.13001. I cannot stress enough the importance of seeking legal counsel when litigating a relocation action or a step parent adoption. The relocation statute makes the action very arduous and in all likelihood you may have only one...

adoption

Q: 

child support/step parent adoption

A: Hi Steve, unfortunately you do not have many options here. child support belongs to the children not the parent and as such the parent cannot waive child support that is owed and the court, administrative or otherwise, is not permitted to do so except in the most exceptional circumstances and this is not one of them. The only way I know of to have the arrears satisfied is to either pay them or have the parent execute and file with support enforcement an affidavit indicating that you have paid the arrears directly to her. I hope this information was helpful to you, if it was, please do me the courtesy of rating it. Please be aware and advised that this public forum is designed to provide only general information,...


Q: 

child Visitation

A: Hi there, I think the best thing you can do for your son is to not let him think he has any power in this decision, but rather help him understand that it"s truly the relationship - and not any legal document or bloodline - that he should most value. With such an approach, it removes the emphasis from needing a judge to make it official, and puts the emphasis correctly on the relationship that your husband and your son are developing. IF it comes to a time that you are able to arrange for your husband to adopt your son, if you"ve done your job well, I bet it will seem anti-climatic. I wasn"t sure from what you described if your son is actually pretending that your husband is his one-and-only father, or if he"s letting everyone know that your husband is his father-figure. If...


Q: 

adoption by step parent

A: Hi Sonny, no he does not need to wait until he is eighteen but the biological father will need to consent to the adoption. If the biological father will not consent the court can waive that consent requirement if there is  a showing of abandonment by the biological father. I hope this information was helpful to you. This answer is based solely on the information you have provided in your question and as always, I would advise that you arrange for an in person consultation with an attorney from my firm or another Family Law attorney familiar with Florida Family Law who can analyze the specific facts and circumstances of the case more closely to better advise you.

step parent adoption
