SECOND / STEP PARENT ADOPTION
Second or step parent adoption allows a child to be adopted by a spouse or a partner of their biological or legal parent. This mechanism is especially helpful in the context of same-sex parenting and children conceived with the assistance of human reproduction technologies.
Unlike standard adoptions, which usually result in a termination of biological parent’s rights, second-parent adoption allows a spouse or a partner to adopt a child without the “first parent” losing any parental rights.
