Our specialist family law adoption solicitors work from our offices in Dorset and Wiltshire and can provide expert legal advice if you are looking to adopt a child in the UK or from overseas.

Adopting children can be a fantastic way to expand or complete your family while also giving a safe haven for youngsters in need. However, there is a strict adoption process that you must follow, as well as a variety of legal issues that can develop during the adoption process. As a result, having the correct legal guidance and support from specialise adoption solicitors is critical.

If you decide to adopt a child, either in the UK or from overseas, having expert legal advice is key. Farnfields Solicitors can support you in this highly complex legal area.

The decision to adopt a child starts an involved legal process. There can be many people or bodies involved before the process is complete. Not just you as the prospective adopter, the children’s guardians or birth parents, local authorities, and, of course, the child. Where the child is being adopted from can add complications, and after the adoption, consider matters such as contact with birth relatives. If you object to an adoption, you need to know what to do too.

Farnfields has expert family lawyers who can advise you on the adoption process from all sides. Regardless of where you plan to adopt from, options are explained before any action is taken. We clearly outline timescales, costs and what you should be thinking about at every stage of the adoption process.

Please contact us to discuss your situation and plans – we would be delighted to advise you.
