The adoption process raises many complicated legal issues, which our experienced team will assist you with.
A child can be adopted by a single person or a couple. They may be unrelated, or be step-parents or relatives of the parents. Whatever the situation, our team can advise on all adoption matters, including:
- children who are to be adopted abroad
