Adoption

Specialist Adoption Advice

There are many children who now live within step-families and step parents may feel they want to fully integrate their step child into the new family unit.

Step parent adoption might be an appropriate option but, following changes to the law in recent years, there are also other options which we can use our long term experience to advise on so the best route is taken.

Special Guardianship, for example, gives parental responsibility but does not extinguish the child’s relationship with the natural parent in the way that adoption does. If when we get to know your situation we find this is the best course of action, we’ll let you know.

Attending to Sensitive Issues

Children are sometimes adopted from the care of Social Services. These cases involve sensitive and emotional issues which we will guide you through.

Here’s how we can help:

  • Step parent adoption
  • Special Guardianship advice
  • Social Services adoptions
  • Adoptive parents advice

What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.
