Adoption Breakdown

HomeAdoption Breakdown

Unfortunately for all involved, adoptive placements can break down.

Whatever the rate of adoption breakdown is, it really does not matter if you are one of those families that has adopted and found that you have reached a point where the adoption is breaking down.

If you feel that any of the above applies to you then it could be that with some support from the Local Authority an improvement is seen. At the Adoption Legal Centre we can help you obtain the appropriate support from the Local Authority. Please click here for details on support.

If you feel that unfortunately no amount of support will save your family from falling apart, then we can assist you in getting the Local Authority to accommodate the children back into foster care or if the Local Authority start care proceedings then we can represent you in those proceedings.
