getting lesbian parental rights with adopted child

I'm currently out of a relationship with my ex which is the same sex as I. We have been separated for about 2.5 yrs and she has already taken away my visitations with him when I became involved with someone else. I'm single again and now everything is fine for know. History:Our son was adopted back in 2007 at 5 mos. He is in her name because at the time we were unsure if the gay thing was alloud and she is military and we at least needed him to be able to get those insurance benefits so no arguing that. Well now after lots of heartache behind not being able to see him once before I'm affraid it could happen again. While we are in good terms I would like to see what my rights are and how can I become his other legal parent?

I have a daughter who since the birth of my grandson has been in a lesbian relationship. My grandson is 22 months old. He is calling them both mommy and I am very concerned. Now they are breaking up and my daughter wants her ex girl friend to have rights over my grandson. The father is paying child support but not a real active part of his sons life. They are talking about him signing away his rights.The ex girl friend is trying to have my daughter sign papers giving her some kind of rights. I understand how the state of Florida feels about lesbian adoption but I need to know if this girl has any leg to stand on and is there anything I can do.

My daughter has gone through a divorce. As part of the

My daughter has gone through a divorce. As part of the divorce agreement filed with the court, the ex-husband would refinance the property (Tallahassee) and my daughter would cover 35% of the closing costs. She signed a quite claim deed. The divorce was finalized 01/06/2016 and he was to complete the refi by 03/31/16. In early May, he had not yet refinanced and agreed he was in contempt (no legal action taken though) and he agreed (in writing, to her lawyer) to cover all closing costs on a refinance. The house was supposedly reappraised as part of the refinance and the bank informed him he has to come up with another $12,000 since the appraisal came back low. Since he can't come up with the $12k, he now wants to sell the property.Home values in Tallahassee have risen an average of 3.7%. He is not living in the house and we're unsure as to the state of it. Personally, I find it hard to believe that the house could depreciate by $12k. Be that as it may, I'm looking for advice on my daughter's options. She needs to get our from under this mortgage because she wants to buy her own home here in St. Petersburg. She's very frustrated because while she's not paying on the Tallahassee property mortgage, he's in contempt and her lawyer is telling her she'll need to pay a lot of $$ to take him back to court.Not sure if this is a question better asked of someone in real estate law or family law so I'm starting here.Need to understand what my daughter's options are to get out from under the mortgage.
