Adoption

If you decide to adopt a child, either in the UK or from overseas, having expert legal advice is key. Moore and Tibbits can support you in this highly complex legal area.

The decision to adopt a child starts an involved legal process. There can be many people or bodies involved before the process is complete. Not just you as the prospective adopter, 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, consider matters such as contact with birth relatives. If you object to an adoption, you need to know what to do too.

Moore and Tibbits has expert family lawyers who can advise you on the adoption process from all sides. Regardless of where you plan to adopt from, options are explained before any action is taken. We clearly outline timescales, costs and what you should be thinking about at every stage of the adoption process. If you are having a child taken away, we can act for you too. We explain things in plain simple English and make sure you are kept informed throughout. We attend case conferences, at court or negotiate with social workers.

Adoption is a challenging time. To get the best advice, contact us today on 01926 491 181.

      Separation can be a difficult and overwhelming experience and even more so when there are children involved. You and your ex-partner may possibly have opposing views as to how to divide your family assets and as to what is best for your children. It is important, if possible, to keep the lines of communication open between you both as you may eventually be able to reach a compromise. If you are able to resolve your issues direct, follow this up by taking legal advice so that you are fully aware of the legal implications of the agreement. You can also arrange for your agreement to be reflected in a legally binding document.

      If you are unable to reach an agreement direct with your ex-partner or if you are confused, there are several different options available to you.
