If you are an adult the adoption process is not the same and the Department of Family and Community Services will not get involved.
Here is some information for you setting out the 2 circumstances when adult adoption may occur.
If you do not fit into those categories it is not going to be possible.
It is all covered under section 24 of the Adoption Act and here is the link to the section.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
