Simonetti & Associates, Nassau County Divorce Lawyer

Long Island Same-Sex Adoption Attorneys give you peace of mind.


Guiding couples through the adoption


Like different-sex couples, same-sex couples can adopt children in New York State. The adoption process can be arduous no matter which category you and your significant other fall into. An excellent place to start would be the New York Adoption Service, but having a team of experienced lawyers by your side is the key to building the family of your dreams!


Simonetti & Associates has over 35 years of family law experience on Long Island, New York. Our experienced lawyers are here to help you and your partner or spouse go through the adoption process.


What kinds of adoptions are available?


In New York, same-sex couples have the same adoptive rights as different-sex couples. You can adopt jointly or singly, as well as adopt the child of your significant other, which is known as second-parent adoption.

When you are ready to adopt, you can start working with an adoption agency or pursue a private adoption with a family law attorney.

  • Agency Adoption

Adoption agencies will help match children with prospective parents. Agencies often offer counseling and childcare training to prospective couples as they go through the adoption process.

  • Private Adoption

Also known as independent adoptions, this choice tends to be quicker because of the individualized nature of the process and is more flexible to the needs of the child and prospective parents. As opposed to agency adoption, where you might be put on waiting lists until they are able to take your case, private adoption involves less red tape.

 Whichever avenue you choose, to finalize a New York state adoption, you must petition the court for approval.


Consult an experienced family law attorney to ensure your petition is adequately and equitably treated.
