As a Jacksonville, Florida child custody lawyer, I often see cases where one parent desires to terminate the parental rights of another to allow a step-parent to adopt. This type of case requires the expertise of a qualified Florida custody attorney as it is quite a detailed task. There are many essential elements that must be fulfilled to qualify to be able to terminate a parent’s parental rights. The process is a two-part process. The first part is to terminate the parental rights, and the second part is the Florida adoption.
