The legal definition of adoption is when an adult legally assumes the role of a parent for a child. This sounds straight forward, but adoption can be a complex area of the law.

There are many different circumstances in which adoption takes place, including when a child is placed with a family by a Local Authority or UK Adoption Agency, or when a step-parent legally adopts a child.

Our adoption solicitors are experienced in various types of adoption arrangements, and can help families throughout the adoption process, as well as dealing with disputes or international issues should they arise.

We work a diverse range of families, including many same-sex parents.

Our adoption services include:

  • UK agency/Local authority adoption
  • International adoption
  • Same-sex adoption rights
  • Post-adoption disputes
  • Step-parent adoption
  • Applications to secure parental responsibility
