Representing Adopters

Adopters have to be carefully assessed by local authorities and the legal process is the final step in what has often been a long and sometimes difficult process of becoming the parent of a child. Our child care solicitors can guide you through this process.

How can we help?

Where a child has already been placed by a local authority with his or her prospective adopters there will usually be a placement order. Many decisions will already have been taken at that stage when the prospective adopters will not usually have been involved. However, the court must still formally consider the question of whether the birth parents agree to the adoption and whether they should have any continuing contact with the child once she or he has been adopted.

In most cases a lot of the information about the adopters is kept private even from other parties in the court proceedings. Our specialist child care solicitors understand the sensitivity of the case and the need to protect the confidentiality of everyone involved whilst ensuring that the court has all the information it needs to make the decision that is right for the child. Our specialist solicitors can advise you throughout the process of adoption.

Our child care solicitors will consider with you whether you may be eligible for Legal Aid in relation to adoption proceedings. We offer competitive rates where Legal Aid is not available. Some help with legal costs may be available from the local authority.

Highly recommended. Took all of the strain and stress during conveyancing and explained everything clearly and concisely.

Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

I will never forget the feeling when I heard the outcome of the court ordering my children to be returned home. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. Your legal expertise, professionalism and attention to detail went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
