The Advantages Of Adopting Your Stepchild
It may seem as if going through the formal process of adopting your stepchild in Florida isn’t a legal necessity. The reality, though, can be quite different, in particular during times of duress such as your child’s illness. Without formal adoption, stepparents technically have no right to make decisions regarding health care, insurance coverage or financial matters. In the event the biological parent becomes incapacitated, the state may step in to make critical decisions.
