Adoption is regulated by section 228 of the Children’s Act of 2005 and entails various steps during the process of legal adoption. The first step is for a social worker to assess the minor child, then permission must be obtained from the biological parents that the minor child can be adopted. (In certain circumstances permission is not required). The next step will be the termination of the parental rights of a child’s biological parents. The final step is the finalization of adoption in court, making you the legal parents of your adopted child. It is very important to note that the biological parents of a child have the right to bring an application to revoke the adoption, and such an application must be brought within two years since granting of the adoption.
