Massachusetts Adoption Act

Pending

Overview

An Act to Promote Efficiency in Co-Parent Adoptions (SB 1013/HB 1485) will expand a more streamlined process for co-parent adoptions by LGBTQ couples who petition to adopt their own children.

The legislation will ensure that children born to LGBTQ families can be adopted without having to go through needless long, expensive, and invasive requirements. It will also provide greater clarity, efficiency, and consistency in the adoption process, allowing universal recognition for these families and the respect they deserve.
