Adoption from Care

In situations where a family have been involved in social services or care proceedings, children may not able to carrying on living with their natural parents. The alternative can be adoption, which will result in the natural parents losing their parental responsibility for the child, and the full rights and duties of a parent are acquired by the adoptive family. These cases involve difficult and sensitive issues and we have the knowledge and experience required to help you - Call us on 028 71 266 818.

Step Parent Adoption

In order for a child to be fully integrated into their new family, step parents may feel it necessary to adopt their step child as they may feel it is in their step child's best interests.  Step parent adoption may be the best solution for a child, but there are also other options which we can advise on, which give the step parent legal status and recognition of their involvement with their step child, whilst enabling the child's relationship with the non-resident birth parent to continue.
