What is international adoption?
International adoption is a highly complicated and often emotionally taxing procedure which involves heavy scrutiny from the authorities in the child’s home country and the UK authorities to ensure that those adopting are able to provide for the child emotionally and financially.
There is eligibility criteria for adoptive parents, however in the UK, nobody can be discriminated against or turned down for adoption on the grounds of sexuality, age, disability, race, religion, marital status or employment. An immigration lawyer can assist you with this complicated area of the law by ensuring you’re familiar with the rules in the UK, and the rules in the country where the adopted child is from.
