Anyone who wishes to adopt a child has to apply to the court for an Order for Adoption.  This includes adoption of the children of family members (nieces and nephews, etc.), adoption of step-children (your spouse’s children), adoption of foster children and adoption of children from people who had unplanned pregnancies and do not want to be parents.   Even as an adult, you can be adopted.

It is important to consult with a lawyer prior to the adoption process to ensure you have all the correct information and to consult about how an adoption changes the legal status of you and the child in many respects.

Please contact my office to discuss concerns with your adoption application.
