Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a Florida licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
Florida will require that you marry before they will allow the bio dad to relinquish parental rights and enter the adoption order for a stepparent.
The court is most concerned with the interest of the child and the stepparent relationship is not established until you actually marry.
I hope this is helpful. If you have any follow up questions feel free to post them. It is never a problem.
Thank you.
