PLAINTIFFS’ MEMORANDUM OF LAWREGARDING RECENT AMENDMENT TO MCLA §710.24
Effective January 9, 2013, MCLA §710.24 was amended to provide in relevant part asfollows:(2) Notwithstanding any other provision in this section, the court may alloweither of the following to occur:...(b)
 A married individual to adopt without his or her spouse joining in the petition
if the failure of the other spouse to join in the petition or to consent to theadoption is excused by the court for good cause shown or in the best interest of the child.(emphasis added).As a consequence of this amendment, even though Michigan law continues to prohibit anunmarried couple, such as Plaintiffs, from adopting each other’s child/children when both wishto do so and when they would marry if legally allowed to do so, Michigan law now permits amarried person to adopt a child, subject to court approval, even over the objection of theirspouse.
