Adoption is a complex and highly specialised area of law. We have extensive experience in dealing with individual cases as well as keeping up to date with policy amendments that affect our clients. We represent prospective adopters, children, children’s biological parents, children’s guardians and other family members.

We offer advice and representation to potential adopters, parents, children (or their guardians) and family members on all aspects of adoption including:

The process of Adoption orders :

  • Contact with adoptees
  • Adopting a child from overseas
  • Adopting a child from care
  • Adopting a family member
  • Social services issues
  • Step-parent adoption
  • Foster-parent adoption

We understand the hurdles and challenges faced by people wishing to adopt can be significant, which is why we are there to give our full support and guide you through each stage smoothly – you will always know where you stand from a legal position, as well as having a full understanding of what you can expect, and what your options are every step of the way.

Our expertise in this area of law and our long-standing reputation in the field means not only are we well equipped to deal with the most complex of cases, but we have also built solid professional relationships with the decision makers, courts, and experts in the field .
