How Can We Help -Adoption Scotland

The Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007

The Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007 governs adoptions in Scotland. When a court approves an adoption order, the adopter is given legal parental rights over the kid. This essentially means that the adoptive parent(s) will have all of the legal parental rights and obligations with regard to the kid after the adoption procedure is complete. The Order is final and irrevocable, and the child’s biological parents are no longer subject to any obligations or rights over the kid.

we listen. we advise. we care.

We offer an empathetic, friendly, approachable, down-to-earth service that is professional and efficient.

What is the eligibility to adopt a child?

Typically, you must be 21 years of age or older to adopt. As long as they are living together and living in an ‘enduring family relationship’, couples are eligible to apply. When one member of a marriage is the biological parent of the adopted kid, that person must be at least 18 and the adopter must be at least 21. People who are divorced or single can apply to adopt a kid.

Past convictions (as long as they weren’t for crimes against children) won’t necessarily disqualify you from adopting. However, the local administration or adoption agency will look into the matter and decide after doing so.

Although the agency or council will want to make sure you have enough money to support the child, it is not necessary to be employed right now in order to adopt.

A health report on you will be created as part of your application. You are not likely to be accepted if you have a major illness. The placement of children with parents of the same race is not mandated by law. Racial, cultural, and linguistic considerations are made, nevertheless.

The Adoption Process

The adoption procedure could appear drawn out and comprehensive. To get the optimum result, though, this is essential. Our extremely receptive and aggressive attorneys are committed to keeping you updated at all times.

There are two ways to set up an adoption:

  • through a professional adoption agency, or
  • on your own, if the child is a member of your immediate family or the child of your spouse, civil partner, or cohabitant.

If approved, it can take some time to find a suitable adoptee unless you specifically applied to adopt a particular child. Your information will be entered into the database for domestic adoptions. Each local authority may use your application to discover a match from this registry, which contains information on all the children in Scotland who are waiting to be adopted.

The youngster must consent to the adoption if they are 12 years old or older. If the court determines that a kid under the age of 12 is mature enough to have an opinion, that youngster’s viewpoints must be considered.

A child from abroad can be especially challenging to adopt. It is first required to determine whether the nation you desire to adopt from permits international adoption. If this is a possibility, you will then need to be evaluated and given permission.

I would highly recommend Simplicity Legal. They have been provided a brilliant service for me the last couple of years dealing with power of attorney, sorting out my dads estate after his death and buying and selling my house. I mainly dealt with Kirsten who was excellent explaining all the processes and keeping me updated. Would definitely use Simplicity again in the future

I was recently introduced to Simplicity Legal Glasgow by a colleague who had used the firm to help him with his divorce proceedings. I took that advice and am really delighted that I did. They were incredibly professional and responsive, constantly striking a balance between being empathetic and ruthlessly efficient/candid when the situation warranted it. Everything was described in layman's terms, with advantages and cons clearly highlighted and always expense transparency. I felt supported by the proper level of guidance provided, but the final decision was always mine. I cannot recommend the Simplicity Legal team highly enough. Thank you for all of your help.

My husband and I cannot thank Simplicity Solicitors Glasgow enough for their professional assistance with our claim; we were very pleased with the entire process. They kept us updated on the progress of the process,. The solicitors with whom we dealt with, were very understanding and helpful, and explained everything to us in a way that we understood. They are a very professional company, and I would recommend their services to anyone who needed information or assistance. We are grateful to have them represent us.

In my experience Clarity and Simplicity are a very reliable firm. At the moment it's not easy to find reliable solicitors, and in fact I approached Clarity and Simplicity after a rather bad experience with another company. I was pleasantly surprised by Kirsten's efficiency and the way things were handled. Highly recommended.
