Second Parent Adoption Legal Workshop for LGBTQ Families

Are you parenting children in a same sex relationship without a legal order of parentage? Many families think that because they are legally married or because both their names appear on their child's birth certificate that their parental rights are protected. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Join attorneys from Georgia Legal Services and The Stonewall Bar for a workshop on what you need to know about second parent and stepparent adoptions. This workshop is designed to help demystify this complicated process for parents or soon to be parents. You will learn about the steps in the process, information on the particularities of your county, and estimated legal costs. There will be time for you to ask questions specific to your unique situation.  This event is open to the public and is cosponsored by Charis Circle's Strong Families, Whole Children Program. The suggested donation is $5 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.


Please contact Joy Edwards if you would like to participate at Edwards.Joy@gmail.com
