How Do I Go About Adopting My Partner’s Child?
31st October 2017
Are you a step parent who wants to adopt your partner’s child?
In my video below, I go through the main steps involved in the adoption process. Some key things for you to consider are:
- You must have the child living with you for at least 6 months before you can make an application through court
- You must let the council know at least 3 months before you make the application
- It can be a long and complicated process so make sure you plan it well in advance
