Adoption law services
We are the UK's leading experts in advising alternative families on family building (including fertility patients and same sex and solo parents) and can help you with:
Family building plans. We can provide independent and impartial advice on what to expect from the adoption process, often looking at UK or intercountry adoption alongside surrogacy, fertility treatment and other options to work out the best route to creating your family.
Expert advice on more complex legal issues, such as whether you meet the criteria for habitual residence or domicile (particularly for foreign or multinational parents adopting in the UK and expatriate British couples based abroad).
Legal representation in UK adoption applications. This includes intercountry adoption applications under the Hague Convention or following adoption in a country that is neither Hague nor Designated, UK adoptions where there are complications, and appeals to the Independent Review Mechanism.
Links with expert immigration and employment lawyers to advise on these aspects where necessary.
