Adoption lawyer

Both citizens of the country and foreigners can apply for adoption under the legislation of Ukraine. But from a legal point of view, this is a complicated procedure. Ultimately, having made mistakes, the risk of canceling the adoption by a court decision cannot be ruled out.

At the law firm Prikhodko & Partners, a specialized specialist is practicing – an adoption lawyer, who is ready to provide the necessary legal assistance in going through the procedure, from collecting documents to obtaining a corresponding court decision.

What steps does an adoption lawyer take?

The range of services for clients includes consultations. In the course of communication with clients, the issues of compliance of a married couple with the criteria of adoptive parents are resolved, and the stages of the adoption procedure are explained in accordance with the norms of Ukrainian legislation.

For your information! Assistance in adoption provides for the accompaniment by a lawyer of the following stages of the procedure:

Collection of a package of documentation (taking into account that the deadline for the validity of documents for presentation is 1 year).

Registration as candidates for adoptive parents (in the service for children’s affairs).

Preliminary acquaintance with children who can potentially be adopted.

Obtaining an opinion in the children’s affairs service regarding the possibility of adopting a particular child.

Submission of the collected documentation to the court, obtaining the corresponding court decision.

Such cases are considered by the courts behind closed doors with preservation of confidentiality. By submitting documents to the court, applicants have the right to ask to change the child’s full name, as well as the date of birth (but not more than six months).

Why is adoption help from an experienced lawyer helpful?

When making a decision, the court is based on the priority of the child’s interests. When collecting documentation and preparing arguments for the court, it is necessary to prove the ability of potential adoptive parents to meet these interests.

For your information! The place where our adoption lawyer works is Kiev. But at the same time, services are also provided to foreigners. In particular, the following documents are being prepared for submission to the Ministry of Social Policy:

  • written consent of potential adoptive parents to check their personal data on the Interpol databases and at home;
  • withdrawal from the competent authorities of the host state of potential adoptive parents;
  • permission to leave / stay for a child,
  • obligation to comply with the conditions of adoption with a notarial certification.

The documents are checked with great care. Only sometimes there can be exceptions to the requirements for adoptive parents (for example, if the adoptive parents are relatives of the child, or if one family adopts several brothers and sisters at once). But in general, the high complexity of the procedure remains unchanged.

Working for the result, an adoption lawyer will help you save time and energy!
