If you are planning to adopt a child, specialist adoption solicitors Slee Blackwell are able to provide a personal, cost-effective service to clients throughout Devon, Somerset and Cornwall. Our team of lawyers are highly experienced in this area of law and we are accredited members of the Law Society’s Children Panel.
We represent both couples and individuals who wish to adopt, including step parents. Our adoption solicitors will use their expertise to guide you through the often complex legal processes involved. We can draft the court documents, liaise with local authorities and the child’s birth parents if necessary, and of course attend court hearings or case conferences.
We are also able to help with post-adoption issues, such as additional support needs and your child’s contact with birth relatives in cases where that is considered appropriate.
The law puts the child’s welfare above all else and we therefore ensure that this is at the forefront of our approach to ensure that your application has the best chances of succeeding.
At the outset, our adoption solicitors will give you a clear briefing on what the legal process involves, the likely timescale and the probable cost. We appreciate that legal fees in particular can often present a hurdle for those wishing to adopt and we are therefore always willing to consider flexible solutions and provide our services in the most cost-effective way. We cover the whole of Devon, Somerset and Cornwall and are happy to chat things over with you before you decide to proceed.
So, if you are hoping to adopt a child and are looking for specialist adoption solicitors to help you do so then call us for a preliminary chat on a free of charge and entirely confidential basis. Phone 01271 349955 or send an email with brief details to adoption solicitor [email protected]
