There are various reasons in which someone may choose to seek the adoption of their grandchildren, nieces, nephews, step children, or other relatives. Each relative child adoption situation in inherently different based upon the unique issues surrounding the adoption request.

In the State of Ohio, the adoption of a relative is typically less complicated, handled in a shorter period of time, and is less inexpensive. As apposed to a non-relative adoption, the adoption of a relative does not always require specific reports, certain recommendations, or favorable home study is required. In addition, relative adoptions do not require background checks or clearances, and a waiting period does not apply.

The shortened and less complicated process for a relative adoption is important in promoting the Florida legislatures intent for children to be afforded a permanent family life that supports it's preference for placement with relatives, whom a child already has an established relationship with.

A relative for the purpose of a relative adoption is determined to be those that shares the same bloodline, including, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and grandparents, grandchildren, half-brother, half-sisters, and great-grandparents.

In some situations, the step-parent may also be granted to adopt the children of their living or deceased spouse. In this situation consent of living biological parents or family members may need to be granted and confirmed in order to be allowed to seek the adoption of a step-child.

Whatever the reasons may be for seeking the adoption of a child who is related, it should be diligently represented to ensure all aspects of the adoption by a relative process goes smoothly and navigated properly.
