Adoption

In our experience, adoptions are now uncommon, and are predominantly international adoptions or step-parent adoptions.  In Western Australia, the early stages of the process occur outside the court system. While we are happy to advise on all steps of the process, the Department for Communities has detailed information available online:

We can advise you on the alternatives to adoption if you already have the child in your care.
