[INFO] Same Sex Stepparent Adoption in Arkansas
If you are in a same sex marriage, you are now entitled to petition as a stepparent to adopt the biological child of your spouse. Consent of the other biological parent is required in some situations; but it is not required in other situations. The state legislature has set out when this is required. Appeals courts have interpreted what the legislature is talking about. An experienced adoption attorney usually can tell you in a free consultation whether it will be required in your personal situation.
