The decision to adopt a child starts an involved legal process. There can be many people or official agencies involved before the process is complete, and many potential adopters will at some point or other feel that adopting a child is very complex.

As well as you (the prospective adopter), the process of adoption may involve the children’s guardians or birth parents, local authorities, and, of course, the child. Where the child is being adopted from can add complications, and after the adoption you'll need to consider other factors such as contact with birth relatives (if any).

Alternatively, if you object to an adoption then we'll explain clearly what you need to do.
