Adoption is a complex process. The details and legal considerations for adoption proceedings are often unique and delicate.
We help parents adopting children across borders, including advising on the cross-border recognition of adoption orders. We can provide support and legal representation services through the court process, as well as helping resolve immigration or nationality issues for your child.
Our experience includes:
- International adoptions
- Second parent adoptions
- Recognition of foreign domestic adoptions
- Specialist wills and estate planning
