In a 2017 landmark decision, a New York appellate court declared that marital presumption also applies to same-sex marriages. This decision was followed up by the New York Child-Parent Security Act (CPSA). The CPSA also provides assistance for those conceiving children through assisted reproduction, with a clear legal course to secure both parents' ties to their children.
Securing legal rights for assisted conception is done through an Order of Parentage. This legal order is available to couples where both the biological parent and their partner planned the conception with the intention to be parents, regardless of marital status or gender. Our second parent adoption attorney can guide your family through this process.
