For most people, the opportunity of adoption is considered after many years of unsuccessfully trying to start or grow a family through multiple setbacks and failures.
Daykin Family Law can discuss with you the process of domestic adoption, as well as the other legal pathways to parenthood available. We also have experience in assisting with intricate international adoption matters.
Adoption can be a complex area of family law, and whilst the number of cases can be small, the process can be technical and frustrating.
The law in Queensland now allows heterosexual couples, same sex couples, single parents and persons undergoing fertility treatment to be considered as adoptive parents. We have considerable success and experience working with same sex couples and are proud to be expanding our services in this area.
If you are intending to adopt a child, either from Queensland, elsewhere in Australia or adopting from overseas, the process can vary. Prior to adopting, we recommend that you seek advice from a family lawyer or refer to Queensland Adoption Services or the other relevant bodies in your State or Territory. The Queensland Adoption Handbook can also provide some insight for Queenslanders.
