As families become more and more international we find increasingly that parents are looking to international adoption or adoption orders being made in other countries to complete their families. The rules relating to international adoptions are complex and this is a highly specialist area of law which can involve complex immigration and regulatory issues.

We can advise:

• Parents who are living in this country and want to adopt a child from abroad
• Parents who are living or working abroad and want to adopt a child, either abroad or in the UK

Our specialist team can advise you clearly about the law and explain the strict rules and regulations that may apply to your situation. We have established strong relationships with immigration lawyers, local authorities and adoption agencies.
