Adopting a child can be one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever go through but there is no doubt that it comes with its own particular challenges. There is a strict legal process to go through before you can start to care for your new son or daughter, and we would always advise seeking the help of a specialist adoption solicitor to avoid any issues or delays.

The adoption process

The legal process surrounding adoption is complex and can be lengthy and nerve-wracking, involving many different individuals and agencies.

We can talk you through the adoption process and handle all the legal aspects on your behalf, such as obtaining the Adoption Order. The process is slightly different depending on how you want to adopt, for example:

  • Step-child adoption: if you or your partner already have children from a previous relationship
  • Fostering to adopt: becoming a foster parent for the purposes of eventually adopting a child
  • Agency adoption: adopting a child through an agency in the UK
  • International adoption: adopting a child from overseas

Our specialist adoption solicitors will support you throughout the adoption process, to make the experience as smooth, efficient and stress-free as possible, so that you are free to focus on getting everything ready to welcome your new child into your home.

If you are looking to adopt, contact our adoption team today for advice.
