Adoption laws

Laws and terms of adoption in New York are outlined in sections 109 to 117 of the domestic relations law. These laws focus on who under the law can be allowed to adopt, and requirements that adoptive parents have to fulfil for them to have a go-ahead. Under New York Adoption law, the consent of children to be adopted and who are 14 years and above is required. Anyone can be adopted in New York as the state laws present no limits concerning a person who can be chosen. An adult who is willing can be adopted by another adult. For a married couple, the spouses have to do the adoption together. Gender is not an issue for the adopting parents. The law, however, provides same-sex adoption for single individuals. Minors can also adopt but only when they are married this because marriage gives minors a number of rights that adults have.

On residency of the adopting party or parties, the law provides that the concerned person have to be residing within the state for three months. A person from another state can only adopt after the three months. However, such a person can initiate the adoption process earlier, even before the required period of three months is attained.
