What is adoption?
Adoption is when a child is legally placed in the care of non-biological parents for their wellbeing and they are no longer a member of their birth family. The same legal rights then apply to the family as they do to biological parents and children. Anyone over the age of 21 can be eligible to adopt, provided that they can provide a stable environment and life for a child.
There are different types of adoption depending on individual circumstances. You are able to adopt a child locally or internationally, as well as adopting whether you are a blood relative or not. You are also able to provide a stable home for a child up until they are eighteen years of age to prevent them being moved around care homes. If you are unsure about adoption and the procedure, it is best that you contact our family law team as soon as possible for the advice you need.
