Dear Client

The following procedure shall be involved in adoption of a child -

  • The party willing for adoption has to make application to Child Welfare Agency. Registration can be done either by an Adoption Coordinating Agency (ACA) found in each state’s capital city, or an agency certified by the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) in New Delhi.
  • After this, the agency conducts a preliminary interview with the adopting couple in order to understand their intention and motivation behind adoption.
  • Once the party decides which child are they going to adopt they file the petition at the court of appropriate jurisdiction, where court hearing takes place regarding adoption (the court is required to dispose the adoption case within 2 months).
  • Once the Court issues the decree, the adoption is finalized.

For any further clarification or discussion, reach out to me at or call me at 7787000846.

Adoption under different laws in India

Adoption is a process of establishing a parent-child  relationship between persons who are not related by birth. It allows parentless  and orphan children to have parents, home, name and a good life and on the  other hand, it enables childless parents to have a child of their own.

Adoption-by-legal-course ensures irrevocable rights  to both adoptive parents as well as adopted child. In India, there are 3 main  existing legislations i.e.

  • The  Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act of 1956 which is  applicable on Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs.
  • The  Guardian and Wards Act of  1890 assist other religions i.e. Muslim, Parsi, Christian and Jews in adoption  as there are no concrete provisions under their personal laws.
  • The  Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act of  2000, amended in 2010 covers the rehabilitation and social reintegration for  orphan children.
