Potential adopters have to be at least 21 years of age. Certain criminal convictions, cautions or bind overs could prevent an individual from being considered.
Inter Country Adoption
Inter-country adoption is a different process from domestic adoption with its own set of practices and requirements.
Some of the procedures are similar to domestic adoption, such as the home study, but adopters also have to comply with the laws in their child’s country of origin.
Voluntary adoption agencies, like Nugent Care, can apply a fee for the completion of home study assessments for purpose of inter-country adoption.
