Experienced Adoption Lawyers

Adoption is an important facet of Family Law in Australia and internationally. At PCL Lawyers, our primary focus is ensuring our clients understand the adoption process and the legal process and requirements are clear.

The process of adopting a child often a lengthy and considered process. It is also highly regulated and process driven. Seasoned adoption lawyers who understand the intricacies of national and international Family Law can help you through the process.

Family Law is one area of law that has a direct and long-lasting impact on individuals’ lives. Adoption is intrinsic to a person’s heritage and identity. It requires proper consideration from the technical legal aspects as well as the other personal factors.

Courts consider a wide range of facts and evidence when determining adoption and what is in the best interests of a child. Having an experienced and capable family lawyer will ensure your case and the relevant facts are clearly articulated. Each adoption case is unique to their circumstances and obtaining the proper legal advice at an early stage is very important.

How our lawyers can help you through the adoption process

Our family lawyers understand the emotional and familial issues surrounding adoption and can assist you in providing reliable and considered legal advice. Our experience in handling family law matters means that you get the advice and will understand both the technical legal and practical issues you will face when adopting a child.

Our adoption advice spans across:

  • Australian adoption legalisation
  • International adoptions
  • Familiar adoptions (including step-parent and relative adoptions)
  • Adoptions originating from foster care or where the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 may be relevant
  • Recognition of foreign adoptions
  • Adult adoptions – court proceeding only

Adoption advice backed by experience and expertise

Our family lawyers are not just proficient, they’re deeply caring and devoted when it comes to handling the sensitive aspects of adoption.

We understand that adoption, whether through the Department of Justice and Community Safety, an approved adoption agency, or as a step-parent, can be an emotionally challenging time.

At PCL Lawyers we take great care to ensure that our clients are represented well. Our lawyers have experience in handling legal matters and take care to ensure that your matter is handled professionally to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

With many years of experience, our Melbourne-based adoption lawyers possess a wealth of knowledge, particularly in negotiating complex international family law matters. We also have a wide network of associated professionals that are often required to complement and support your adoption process.

Our lawyers guide potential adoptive parents through the legal process and support channels, advising them on their options.

For some a formal adoption is more suitable and for other families it may be that a robust parenting Order from the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia would be better suited for their family.
