Adoption Lawyers

Adoption is a process whereby a person assumes the parenting of another, usually a child, from that person's biological or legal parent or parents. An adoption divulges all responsibilities of the child on the adopting parent(s) – all rights, privileges and responsibilities that a child with biological parents can be expected to have. Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) - CARA ensures smooth functioning of the adoption process from time to time, issues Adoption Guidelines laying down procedures and processes to be followed by different stakeholders of the adoption program.

 

How May We Assist You

At India Law Offices LLP, we can help you in adoption cases as it requires understanding of procedures and collaboration with CARA. We can assist you ensuring that you comply with all the legal necessities as laid down by CARA and other personal laws that may be applicable to the adoption. We also assist in determining your eligibility to adopt a child according to the laws of adoption. For valid adoption, our lawyers can help in filing the petition in the relevant court, stating the intent to adopt the child. The adopting parents have to visit the court to sign the petition in front of a court lawyer and our team of lawyers can be present to guide you through every step.  Our lawyers will also assist while the adoptive parents attend a mandatory court hearing with the child with an appointed judge. Our team of lawyers can brief the clients about the court hearing before the parents are asked to visit the court. Our lawyers can also read the court order once it is passed and address any ambiguities that may arise.

 Some personal laws do not permit adoption and hence guardianship is the alternative. Muslims, Christians, Parsis and Jews in India are governed by the Guardians & Wards Act 1890. Our lawyers can help with such guardianship petitions with nuanced understanding of laws and procedures. Indian citizens who are Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, or Buddhists are allowed to formally adopt a child under the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act 1956. Our experienced lawyers are well versed with the statute and its procedures for legitimate adoption.

We would be happy to assist you!
