Adoption

You may be considering adopting a child, opposing the adoption of your child or have just married and wish for your new husband or wife to become an adoptive parent. Whatever the situation, we can help with the legal aspect of adoption.

We can also help to fight against Placement Orders where a local authority has decided to put your child up for adoption where you believe that there are insufficient grounds for the child to have your parental rights removed.

We will always work for what we believe in the best interests of the child and the wider family, and judge each case on its merits, with Legal Aid assistance for eligible clients, so if you are facing losing your child and need support, Crockett and Co Solicitors can offer a sympathetic ear and an experienced team to fight your case.

The kind of issues we can provide support for includes:

  • Helping with domestic adoption, where a child has been placed with you by a local authority
  • Fighting against Placement Orders where the local authority has put a child up for adoption
  • Having adoption orders which were made abroad recognised in England
  • Helping potential adopters to decide whether they're entitled to adopt in England
  • Assisting with the legal process of adopting your child as a newly married couple
