Cameron Macaulay Solicitors - Glasgow


Adopting a child won’t change the world but for that child the world will change.

Adopting Children

We provide assistance to clients who would like to adopt children in Scotland. It is a curiously neglected area of legal practice with few firm’s providing a dedicated service. We represent clients who are planning to adopt and sometimes clients who want to object to an adoption.

Adoption from Care

On occasions, particularly where the family have come to the attention of the social work
department, children are unable to carrying on living with their natural parents. The alternative is adoption when the natural parents lose their parental rights which are then acquired by the children’s adoptive parents. We are accustomed to helping clients cope with the sensitive and complex issues which can arise in such cases.

Step Parent Adoption

We also deal with step parent adoption and the less formal but practical and effective alternatives to it.


There are various methods of funding adoption petition and related work. Subject to your status the local authority might the cost. Alternatively legal aid is sometimes available. Finally, we can carry out the work on a private fee-paying basis
