However, how does adoption take place here? Before we answer this question, there is need for us to remind ourselves what adoption is.
What is Adoption?
Adoption is a process whereby a person assumes the parenting for another and, in so doing, permanently transfers all rights and responsibilities from the original parent or parents. Adoption in Plano, like in any other responsible Society is not for everybody. There are specific people eligible to adopt just as there are specific people eligible to be adopted. The following people are eligible to adopt:
-Single Parents (Irrespective of their sex orientation)
-A partner of a parent of the child to be adopted
-Unmarried couples living as partners in a stable family relationship
Above all, the application for adoption is granted based on the prospective adoptive parents’ ability to meet the need of the child. Lest I forget, before any court can make an adoption order, the court has to be satisfied of all the following among other things:
-The child was under 18 when the application was made
-The child is not or has never been married or in a civil partnership
-Both birth parents have given their consent to the adoption
How Long Does the Adoption Process Last in Plano?
Adoption process can happen as quickly as possible or it lasts for a very long time. The three major factors that determine how long the process lasts are:
-The financial State of the prospective adoptive parents
-The requirements they have in mind
-The type of adoption they desire
However, the most important is how much the prospective parents put toward the adoption process. A contact with a birth mother is a good measure to speed up the process.
How to Speed Up Adoption Process in Plano:
In order to speed up the adoption process, be prepared to keep an open mind. That is to say, the prospective parents must not have a strong grip on particular type of child. In addition to this, the prospective parents should apply the measure of having the legal documents in place while the child is yet to be seen or found. According to Vivian Pearson, once the prospective parents decide to adopt, they should obtain the certified copies of their birth certificates, marriage license and tax returns for the previous seven years. In addition to these, some instructions to hasten the process are given below:
-Expand the pool of children you are willing to adopt
-Indicate interest in black or Hispanic children
-Adopt children with special needs
-Adopt more than a child when the child in question has a brother or sister
-Choose independent and non-agency adoption
