International Adoption



SCLN Legal Network offers legal advice and assistance for all stages of national and international adoption proceedings.

National adoption contempates three steps: the declaration of adoptability status, pre-adoptive custody, the final provision that makes the adoption actual and that makes the adopted a legitimate son.

However, the international adoption procedure is regulated in five stages: Decree of parental suitability issued by the competent Juvenile Courts; training and aptitude support provided by authorized Bodies of the International Adoption Commission; meeting abroad between prospective parents and the child to be adopted; possible pre-adottive custody; transcription of the adoption in the civil status registers.

The Firm also provides specialist expertise for the adoption of italian and foreign adults and for adoption in special cases, both provided by L. 184/1983.
