Same Sex Couples

The Law Office of Faith Getz Rousso, P.C. represents same sex couples on their journey to become parents.

New York State law affords same sex couples the same rights as heterosexual couples in adoption.


SECOND PARENT ADOPTIONS​

We represent individuals interested in legalizing their relationship with their partner's biological child. Second parent adoption gives the non-biological or non-adoptive parent all of the same rights and responsibilities of the biological parent.

 

IF THE BABY'S PARENTS ARE MARRIED AT THE TIME OF BIRTH

If you are married at the time of the birth of the child, then both parents are the "legal" parents of the child. However, in the event you go to a jurisdiction where same sex marriage is not recognized then the non-biological parent may not have rights to make medical decisions for the child, or the right to visitation or custody of the child if the relationship ends.
