Adoption

Welcoming a child into your family is an exciting, but often stressful time. That’s why you need the experts on your side.

Here at Watsons, our team of specialist adoption solicitors have many years of experience in providing legal support throughout the adoption process. Our dedicated team of professionals are committed to ensuring that the child adoption process runs smoothly. Meeting the interests of the child and our client is always our top priority.

There are a number of  different types of adoption, and we can assist you with all of them. Some of the most common types of adoption include:

  • Domestic adoption
  • International adoption
  • Stepparent & foster parent adoption
  • Local authority adoption
  • Surrogacy adoption.
  • Same-sex couple adoption

We can also help with any post-adoption problems that may occur.

We offer free half-hour consultations upon request.

Who can adopt?

Anyone over the age of 21 may be considered to adopt, so long as they can provide a loving, stable and permanent environment for a child to grow up in. There will be an assessment to ensure that you are capable of bringing up a child, but you are welcome to apply regardless of your marital status, religion, race, employment, disability, sexuality and age.

Any child under the age of 18 can be adopted, unless they have been married.
