We offer a fixed fee service for undefended adoptions of £1,000 + VAT. There is a court outlay of £96. The majority of these types of cases arise when one of the natural parents has a child/children from a previous relationship and marries. The new spouse (who is the step-parent) then wants to adopt the child to form a family unit.
Any adoption will require attempts being made to locate the other birth parent, irrespective of whether or not they are named on the Birth Certificate or have seen the child/children for a number of years.
