More and more couples are considering adoption. While you must be at least 21 to adopt a child in Scotland, there is no upper age limit. In addition, couples of all sexual orientations are now eligible to adopt, as are single persons. Unemployment and low income are not necessarily barriers to adoption.

Adoption Law in Scotland

However, there is a complicated adoption process that must be followed. Moreover, adoption is a legal process. This means that, as an adoptive parent, you will have rights and responsibilities, and there are financial consequences. Essentially, you will be the legal parent of the child. Before adopting, you may wish to contact a lawyer about the legal and financial implications of your decision. Simplicity can help.
