Adopting a step-child can be a wonderful experience for a family. However, this does not mean it is without its complications. When these occur it is important to know that you have the best advice and support available.

An application for a child to be adopted needs to be given very careful consideration. The implications of an Adoption Order will last throughout the child’s life and affect any children he/she may have as an adult.

Adoption is the single most drastic order a Court can make concerning a child. It is the only Order that terminates irrevocably the parental responsibility for a birth child, and ends existing legal relationships and Court Orders.

At Patrick Lawrence Partnership we have a highly skilled and experienced Family law team that can help you with your adoption application.

We are also experienced in representing those birth parents wishing to oppose the making of an adoption order.

Book an appointment to see us at our Gravesend office to discuss your individual circumstances.

Please let us know when booking the appointment if you would like to see us in our wheelchair accessible meeting room.
