Are you looking to adopt a child? Have you been a caretaker for a child and want to know how to make him/her a permanent member of your family?

When a child is adopted, he has the same legal status as a natural child, including the right to financial support from his parents and the right to inherit property from them. The biological parents of a child who has been adopted are no longer legally his parents. Whether to adopt is an important decision for both the child and the adoptive parents. All of the legal and social aspects of an adoption should be discussed with the lawyer who handles the adoption and with the social agency responsible for the placement.
