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 expert legal advice on how to adopt a child in Wales to avoid any issues or delays.
The legal process of adopting a child in the UK is complex and can be lengthy and nerve-wracking, involving many different individuals and agencies.
We can talk you through the process of how to adopt a child in Wales 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 carer for the purpose of eventually adopting a child.
● Agency Adoption – Adopting a child in the UK through an agency.
● International Adoption – Adopting a child from overseas.
