Czech Republic rules against same-sex couples adopting


LGBT community in Czech Republic hoped that court is able to make amendments to the law that prevents queer couples who are registered abroad from adopting Czech children. Unfortunately, Czech Constitutional Court decided to reject it. Same-sex marriage is illegal in the country, so same-sex couple have no right to adopt children. Prague Regional Court tried to change it by making attempt to propose some changes on international law, but it had no success. According to the Constitutional Court, Czech adoption laws will be easily circumvented in other countries when they make such amendment. It was actually the case of same-sex couple who lives currently in the USA (they are Czech and Trinidad and Tobago citizen). New Jersey court allowed them to adopt a child, but local court refused to recognize it. We Are Fair [LGBT advocacy group in Czech Republic] is sure their country has to legalise marriage for LGBT people.
