Le­gal pro­ce­dure ac­cord­ing to the Cen­tral Adop­tion Re­source Au­thor­ity

Sunday Express - - CHENNAI -

Once the prospec­tive par­ents have reg­is­tered on­line, Spe­cial Adop­tion Agen­cies (SAA) do a Home Study Re­port (HSR), where the par­ents-to-be have to pay `6,000. In HSR, par­ents’ crim­i­nal records, phys­i­cal and men­tal health and holis­tic en­vi­ron­ment are checked with val­i­dat­ing doc­u­ments To adopt a baby that is less than a year old, the com­pos­ite age of both par­ents should not ex­ceed 90. And par­ents with com­pos­ite age of over 90 are en­ti­tled to adopt chil­dren above the age of one

Post HSR, prospec­tive par­ents have to un­dergo a wait­ing pe­riod of min­i­mum two years for fi­nal agree­ment from the dis­trict Judge To curb ju­di­cial de­lay, the re­cent amend­ment in JJ Act says the chair­man of DCPU can pro­vide fi­nal or­ders in adop­tion pro­ce­dures. Once the child is given for adop­tion, fol­low-up pro­ce­dures are done by NGOs
