Legal Support & Advice
The law surrounding adoption either from the UK or internationally is very specialised and complex. A child who is adopted becomes a legal member of their new family and stops being a member of their birth family.

Adoption Law

We can help you ensure that you fully understand all of your rights and obligations from the start of this process. It is a life-changing process for all involved and because of that there are many safeguards built in for the protection of the child(ren) involved and the welfare of the child is paramount. The authorities will carry out very rigorous checks and you need to be aware of any legal consequences, particularly if the child that you are adopting is from overseas.

If a child is to be adopted, they must be under eighteen when the application is made and not married or in a civil partnership. It is also required that you have the express consent of both birth parents, except if they are not traceable, cannot give consent or if the child will be at serious risk unless they are adopted.

If you are contemplating adoption, you be must be twenty one or over, and although your marital status does not affect your application, there are rules if you are adopting privately or are adopting looked-after children. The other rules are that you must have a fixed and permanent home in the UK, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man and have lived in the United Kingdom for at least a year before initiating the application process.

To adopt a child you must go through an adoption agency that’s part of your local council or use a voluntary adoption agency. If you can adopt a child, you will then need to apply for an adoption court order. This order makes the adoption permanent and gives the child(ren) the same rights as if they were your biological children.

Not being aware of the adoptions laws can have unanticipated and devastating consequences. We can offer you a bespoke service tailored to your specific legal needs at all stages of the adoption process. We understand you will get support from the adoption agency and allocated social worker but it is still advisable to get specialist independent legal advice at the earliest opportunity.

Some of the adoption issues we can assist with:

  • Assisting with the legal entry of a child into England for the purposes of adoption
  • Having adoption orders which were made abroad recognised in England
  • Assisting potential adopters to decide whether they’re entitled to adopt in England
  • Helping with adopting a child from social services care
  • Helping with adopting a child from within the family
  • Contact for children who are adopted or about to be adopted
  • Applications by birth families in adoption proceedings
