Adoption of Children in Singapore

Adopting a child in Singapore

Adoption is a legal process whereby parental rights over a child are conferred to the applicants. Once adoption is complete the parental ties to the original parents are severed. The adopters become the parents and take on all parental rights, duties, obligations and liabilities in relation to the child. Married spouses may jointly apply for adoption of a child.

Child adoption in Singapore is primarily regulated by the Adoption of Children Act (ACA). IRB Law provides guidance and assistance on the eligibility of adoptive parents, procedural elements involved in adoption, legal implications, and other related adoption services.
