IssueSame-sex adoption
Statusambiguous
Start Datepast
End Date-0001
DescriptionAny adult may petition, and married and civil union-ed couples must petition jointly per Revised Statute §578-1. The status is ambiguous because second-parent adoption for same-sex couples varies by judge and county, and no decision by the lower court has been approved by case law in appellate court, nor by state statute.
