Adoption

FACILITATING PRIVATE, STEP-PARENT AND RELATIVE ADOPTIONS FOR FAMILIES

From proposed adoption placement to the legal adoption completion, Klein Law is with you every step of the way.

To adopt a child, there are three basic “factors” you need to consider:
1. Actually finding a child.
2. Getting a home study done by a Ministry approved Adoption Practitioner.
3. Determining what type of adoption you are seeking. There are different procedures, legislation and agencies in Ontario for domestic and international (inter-country) adoptions and relative and stepparent adoptions.

In Ontario, private adoptions are handled by individuals known as Licensees and Adoption Agencies, both licensed by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.

Marty Klein is a Licensee, licensed by the Province of Ontario to place children for private (domestic) adoptions within Ontario. As Licensee, Marty is responsible for the overall management of a proposed adoption placement and subsequent probationary period, until the legal completion of the adoption.

Marty also handles relative and step-parent adoptions, guiding you through the obtaining of consents and the final Adoption Order.
