Product description

Why should you buy International Adoption

 

International Adoption examines the detailed legal framework for adoption with an international element and introduces the reader to the complexities of both UK legislation and the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption. Thus, the title equips practitioners with the tools required to advise a client on how to:

  • adopt a child in this country who is habitually resident outside of the British Isles
  • obtain legal recognition in the UK for a foreign adoption
  • arrange for the adoption of a child who is habitually resident in this country, where the prospective adopter is domiciled and habitually resident outside of the British Isles

The book also includes appropriate specialist information in relation to immigration matters so as to alert the reader to the potential issues that may need to be considered.
