Adult Adoption

Andersons Solicitors can assist in the process involved in applying for Adult Adoption. We can advise on whether an application is likely to succeed or not. We can prepare the required documents to enable an application to be made and represent clients at court for the hearing of an application.

These Applications are made to the Youth Court of South Australia in accordance with the Adoption Act 1988 (SA).

Under this legislation there are specific requirements that must be met before an application is likely to succeed. There are also exceptions to these requirements in certain circumstances.

It is important that parties to an Adult Adoption understand the legal process involved in applying for that adoption to occur and the legal consequences of the adoption being granted.

For assistance with an Adult Adoption please contact Eva Bailey in Andersons Solicitors’ Family Law team.
