Adoption Solicitors

There are many families looking to provide children with a stable and happy upbringing by adopting. Unfortunately the adoption process can be drawn out and complicated. As such the assistance of experienced and specialist adoption solicitors can really help. The advice we provide will prepare you for every eventuality, providing clear, honest and straightforward advice throughout the process, giving you the very best chance of success.

Anyone over the age of 21 is eligible to adopt if they can provide a permanent, stable, caring and loving environment for a child. The best interests of the child are paramount in every adoption case, which is why an extremely thorough assessment is carried out of every prospective parent to ensure their suitability.

We can identify situations which may cause problems before they arise, helping to reduce the stress and remove any stumbling blocks from the adoption process.

Recent Changes to Adoption Law

The UK adoption laws are constantly evolving, particularly recently as more and more prospective parents look to adopt children from abroad. These changes have added to the complexity of the adoption process with additional legal requirements that must be met.

Our team of adoption solicitors are specialists, dealing exclusively in family law matters. This experience makes our assistance invaluable when trying to negotiate the twists and turns many adoption cases involve. By keeping up to date with changes in the law, we are perfectly placed to provide the dedicated, open and comprehensive advice you need.
