Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the adoption of children by civil partners from the perspective of the right to equal treatment. Adoption of children by civil partners can be divided into three categories; namely individual or joint adoption of a foreign child and the adoption of the child of second partner (second-parent adoption). Attention is paid to all these situations. The article also pays attention to the recent Constitutional Court judgment which derogated Sec. 13 para. 2 of the Act on registered partnerships that banned civil partners to adopt a child. The issue of adoption does not affect only the Czech Republic therefore the reader will be briefly acquainted with European context.
