DescriptionFlorida §3.042 specifies any individual may adopt, but married couples may only adopt when engaged in a male/female marriage. Second-parent adoption is granted in some cases to same-sex parents, but it varies widely by judge and county. Second-parent adoption has only been ruled on in lower courts; no appellate court case law, nor state statute, dictates the legality of it.
