Colin Brown & Kidson - Whitby's Local Law Firm

Adoption

If you decide to adopt a child, either in the UK or from overseas, having expert legal advice is key. CBK can support you in this highly complex legal area.

The decision to adopt a child starts an involved legal process. There can be many people or bodies involved before the process is complete. Not just you as the prospective adopter, the children’s guardians or birth parents, local authorities, and, of course, the child. Where the child is being adopted from can add complications, and after the adoption, consider matters such as contact with birth relatives. If you object to an adoption, you need to know what to do too.

Colin Brown & Kidson has expert family lawyers who can advise you on the adoption process from all sides. Regardless of where you plan to adopt from, options are explained before any action is taken. We clearly outline timescales, costs and what you should be thinking about at every stage of the adoption process. If you are having a child taken away, we can act for you too. We explain things in plain simple English and make sure you are kept informed throughout. We attend case conferences, at court or negotiate with social workers.

Adoption is a challenging time. To get the best advice, contact us today on 01947 603 391.
