What is co-parent adoption?

Co-parent adoption occurs when a biological parent of a child allows another guardian of the child to legally adopt the child. This type of adoption is most common in situations of third-party reproduction, wherein a couple uses another person outside of the couple to create and bring a child into the world. If one member of the couple is the child’s biological parent, but the other is not, they may use co-parent adoption to make the other individual a legal parent as well. This situation is common for same-sex couples and couples that use a surrogate or donor conception.
