What is Adoption?
Adoption is a legal process that establishes a parent-child relationship between individuals who are not biologically related. Through adoption, you welcome a child into your family, providing them a forever home.
Types of Adoption:
There are various types of adoption, including:
- Domestic Adoption: Adopting a child from within your country.
- International Adoption: Adopting a child from another country.
- Stepparent Adoption: When a stepparent legally adopts the child of their spouse.
- Relative Adoption: Adopting a child within your extended family.
The adoption process involves several legal steps, including:
- Petition: Filing an adoption petition with the appropriate court.
- Home Study: A thorough assessment of your home and background to ensure a safe environment for the child.
- Consent: Obtaining the necessary consents from birth parents or legal guardians.
- Termination of Parental Rights: In cases of relinquishment or involuntary termination.
- Adoption Order: The court issues an adoption order, finalizing the adoption and granting legal parental rights.
Rights and Responsibilities:
Adoption grants you the same legal rights and responsibilities as if the child were your biological offspring. You become the child’s legal parent with the duty to provide care, support, and a nurturing environment.
