Adoption

Specialists in international adoption

Our lawyers are able to help those thinking about adopting a child that is currently in local authority care, a relative or a step child.

We also specialise in international adoption. This is a particularly complex, distinct area of family law – even within international family law itself. Breaches of the law and regulations carry serious criminal penalties as well as immigration difficulties for those wanting to adopt and the children involved.

Expert legal advice and assistance is absolutely crucial right from the beginning of the process.

We represent single people and couples considering international adoption and can advise and guide you through this very complex area of international family law.
