To provide that an unmarried father can acquire parental responsibility for his natural child where he and the child's mother register the birth of their child together.

You will also find short courses and guides from the foster carer’s perspective, top tips, allegation help, templates, and the ability to add to FosterWiki. In the majority of cases, the child must have had their home with the prospective adopter for a minimum duration of time before the application can be made.

It is an offence for parents or prospective adopters to advertise their wish to adopt or for anyone other than an adoption agency to advertise and arrange adoptions. The first involved a ‘mild preference’ for ethnic matching and the second allowed for an ‘insistence upon the necessity of ethnic matching’ which they argue could be at the expense of the child’s welfare. A person in respect of whom a decision has been made regarding adoption will be able to apply to a review panel for a review of the decision. The report will also set out the characteristics of the type of child the applicants could care for (in the UK this report will usually be undertaken by a Local Authority or an accredited adoption society).If the leave of the court is required because an applicant does not meet the ‘residence requirement,’ the leave must be obtained before providing the ‘notice of intention to adopt’ to the local authority. In recent years there has been a growing number of birth relatives , mainly birth mothers, who have expressed a desire to have some information about the child they placed for adoption . The second stage relating to inter-country adoptions came into effect on 1st June 2003 and the third stage relating to Adoption Support Services was implemented on the 31st October 2003. The Adoption and Children Act 2002 representsed the most radical overhaul of adoption law for 26 years, replacing the outdated Adoption Act 1976 and modernising the entire legal framework for domestic and intercountry adoption.
