Adoption in Australia is a complicated situation and requires a lot of complex paperwork and procedures and processes.
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there were 310 adoptions finalised in Australia in 2019, and 82 per cent of these were adoptions of Australian children.
Also, 98 per cent of them are local adoptees, and 65 per cent of intercountry adoptees were under the age of 5.
There can be many obstacles and legal minefields to jump over concerning children under 18, and it can be a drawn-out process.
In Australia, you cannot organise a private adoption yourself, which is why you to need to go through the right legal channels the first time.
A family lawyer can prepare your case in a timely and comprehensive manner. They can also provide a thorough application that underlines your credentials to prove that adoption is in the best interests of the child in question.
As loving parents, you want to do what’s right for your child or children irrespective of how you feel about your ex-spouse.
This is something that the courts agree with, and the laws are designed with the best interests of the child in mind.
The goal is, usually, to ensure that children can enjoy healthy relationships with both parents while remaining safe at all times.
A family lawyer will represent your case most professionally to help ensure that a suitable conclusion is made from your perspective, as well as your child’s.
