"California Adoption Law and Procedure explains the law governing contested adoptions. It covers the four types of adoptions (independent, agency, stepparent and intercountry), and briefly discusses those aspects of guardianship and juvenile dependency law which relate to adoptions. This book explores the "best interests of the child" and the home study process. It also seeks to explain "consent, " whose consent must be obtained, and whether consent may be revoked. The book further describes the roles of attorneys, adoption service providers, adoption facilitators, adoption agencies and governmental agencies. It seeks to clarify the rights of the adoptive parents, the child, and of third parties, whether or not a Postadoption Contact Agreement is in place. This text discusses interstate conflicts and how laws such as the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act operate. It also covers the new federal statutes and regulations which implement the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption."-- Back cover.

The forthcoming Adoption and Children Act 2002 is aimed to promote the wider use of adoption, to improve performance of the adoption services and to place the needs of children at the centre of the adoption process. The Act will also reform the need for parental consent to adoption. This work explains the new legislation and sets it in the context of adoption law. It also provides a comprehensive analysis of the law and practice in respect of inter-country adoptions. Questions that are answered include: how will the principle that the welfare of the child is paramount affect adoption decision making?; what new duties will local authorities have with regards to adoption?; what are the new measures for placement for adoption and consent and placement orders?; and what is a special guardianship order?
