How Does New York Treat Second Parent Adoption In A Gay Divorce?

New York family law is moving swiftly in the direction of considering children born to same-sex families legitimate to both parents.

If you and your same-sex spouse have adopted a child together, or have utilized surrogacy, IVF, or other means to bring a biologically-related child into the world, there are precedents that suggest that courts will continue to treat “second parents” with the same consideration as any other parent.

This area of law is still not settled, so to protect your right to time with your child after a same-sex divorce, it’s important that you work with experienced attorneys who know the current state of the law – and where it should go from here.

Call the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino at 718-725-9601 today to talk to a Brooklyn custody and divorce attorney who knows same-sex family law.
