Our Services In Adoption
Adoptions Nova Scotia
Adoptions are a special life event which should be a time of celebration, not a time of struggling through court paperwork. Our adoption lawyer has nearly ten years’ helping parents connect the legal dots to parenthood.
Our uncontested adoptions (meaning the parties involved agree in the adoption taking place) involve, first, an initial consultation, and then work on the adoption itself.
When you are applying for adoption in Halifax, the uncontested adoption process includes (among other things):
- Writing to the Department of Community Services to provide a notice of proposed adoption. This would include details of the parties involved
- Completing the application ‘with consents’ for adoption in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia.
- Upon approval of the court, receiving an adoption order. As part of the flat fee, we attend all court appearances with you as your legal representative.
Whether you are looking to adopt a baby, child, youth or even an adult, we would love to be a part of the process with you. We will be with you step by step, helping you understand the nature of the law, helping you gather your paperwork, and helping you through the court process.
Adoption Legal Fees
Uncontested adoptions are $3500* plus HST (flat fee), and disbursements, after the initial consultation.
