Adoption vs. Guardianship

The first thing you’ll need to be sure of is that you really want a full legal adoption and not simply a legal guardianship. There is a clear and important distinction between these options.

When you adopt a child, it is a permanent arrangement and you assume full and total responsibility for the child until they reach the age of 18 years.

Most importantly, the natural parents and/or any existing family relatives forfeit all responsibility for the child and any kind of say they would have in the raising of the child.

The natural parents of the child also do not have to provide any kind of financial support for a child who is adopted by somebody else.

A guardianship is not always permanent and natural parents do not forfeit any of their parental rights or responsibilities.

They may also have to provide financial support for the child, although there are potentially some situations where that may not be the case.

A guardianship can be terminated if the natural parents apply to the court to have it terminated and the court agrees that it is in the best interest of the child to be returned to the natural parents.

This isn’t normally possible when a child is adopted.

Adoption Types That Our Legal Services Offer:

The type of adoption you pursue will depend entirely on your preferences and unique situation.

When a person or family wants to adopt a child, they actually have a number of different options to do so.

Regardless of which you choose, it is best to have an experienced lawyer supporting you, as they can help you navigate the legal complexities and address any issues that arise.
