August 17, 2007, Newsletter Issue #45: What Happens to Children if Your Relationship Ends

Tip of the Week

It is important to consider parental rights when adopting a child in case your relationship breaks up. If your relationship ends and you have no legal rights to the child, your partner is under no obligation to grant you access.

In cases where one parent is the biological parent, it is important for the other partner to either formally adopt the child or otherwise establish legal parental rights. If the child has been adopted by only one partner, some countries allow step-parent rights for the other gay partner, however, this does not apply to all countries. Be sure to carefully investigate all laws regarding gay and lesbian adoption in your area.
