National Adoption Awareness Month

Adoption Facts:
  • Over the past year, 159 adoptions were finalized in Pasco County.
  • On any given day, between 750 and 850 children are awaiting adoptions in Florida, without a forever family.
  • Support is available for adoptive parents, including tax credits, scholarships for adopted children, adoption Service Counselors, and support groups to name a few.

All children deserve loving, permanent homes. That is the motivation behind National Adoption Awareness Month, celebrated in November. On November 7th, 2014, the Clerk & Comptroller's Office participated in an Adoption Day Ceremony. Pasco Unified Family Court Judges from the Sixth Judicial Circuit presided over 18 adoptions at the West Pasco Judicial Center. Congratulations to those who made this important step together. Thanksgiving will be particularly special for the 23 children and their new families this year.

Throughout the year, the Clerk & Comptroller's Office assists with adoption court paperwork. Acknowledging that the legal process for adoption can be complicated, the Civil Courts Division strives to perform its statutory duties with a customer focus. It is a privilege to play a role in the adoption process. For assistance with court records and filings pertaining to adoption, select the Courts tab.
