What is the process of a same sex adoption?
Same sex couples in South Carolina face some legal challenges, as they are not usually eligible for all of the protections available to opposite-sex married couples. There are no specific laws in South Carolina prohibiting same sex couples from adopting children. The law states that any person residing in our state may petition the court to adopt a child, and that any child or adult present within the state at the time the petition is filed can be adopted.
Though there is no specific prohibition against same sex adoption in our state, having the right kind of legal representation is still important. With all of the steps involved in the process to adopt a child, it can be a complicated procedure and should be conducted by an experienced lawyer. Call our firm today and let us help you and your partner create the family you've always wanted.
