Family Law Firms Bristol
When you adopt a child you are taking on the legal responsibility for the welfare and care of that child. Adoption can happen for a number of reasons, for example, when a couple who are unable to have children naturally decide to adopt instead; but there are a number of other reasons why adoption takes place.
Common reasons for adoption in the UK include step parents wanting to become the legally recognised parent of their partner’s child, and couples wanting to provide children without a family, with a safe and caring home environment that they wouldn’t otherwise experience.
If you are considering adoption, you need to fully understand the process, as well as the legal implications. One of the solicitors in our Family Law Firms Bristol office will be able to help.
There are a range of selection criteria that anyone looking to adopt will be assessed against. It’s not necessary to have a partner to adopt a child, or to be of a certain financial or educational status, nor do race or religion play a part. Each case is considered individually and prospective parents are assessed on their own merits. If you want more information on adoption you can click on the link for the Adoption Information Line, or contact one of the specialists in our Family Law Firms Bristol office to talk about the process of adoption and your options.
For anyone thinking about adopting a child our Family Law Firms Bristol office will be able to guide you through the process.
