How we can help

Adoption Lawyers in Scotland

Adoption is a legal process whereby all the paternal rights and responsibilities of a child are granted to the adoptive parent(s). Once the process is complete, the adopter will become the child’s legal parent. 

The court order for adoption means that the birth parents will cease to have any rights or responsibilities for the child, and the order is irreversible, except in incredibly rare circumstances.
