ADOPTION LAWYER IN SINGAPORE

Governed under the Adoption of Children Act (ACA) in Singapore, child adoption is a legal process where parental rights over a child are conferred to authorise the applicant to adopt the infant. The adoption order will be passed by the Family Court of Singapore. If you are considering adoption or have already identified a child for adoption, it can be a fulfilling journey for you ahead as prospective parents. However, to be able to take care of the child until he/she is independent, you must prove that you have the physical and financial means to do so. With this in mind, it is important to first familiarise yourself with the requirements of adoption in Singapore. A lawyer can keep you informed, handling the legal documents while guiding you through the necessary procedures. Beyond the paperwork, it is essential to have a lawyer by your side to assist you in case of issues arising during the adoption process. To help navigate you through the process effectively, hiring an adoption lawyer in Singapore can prevent future complications and shorten the waiting period.
