When an adoption order is passed by the court, the child’s legal ties with the biological parents will be severed and all the rights, duties, obligations and liabilities shall vest in the adoptive parents. This is pursuant to section 7(1) of the Adoption of Children Act.

Introduction to adoption

The first step towards adopting a child is to determine whether one meets the eligibility requirements. The eligibility requirements for adoption are:

  1. The child must be below 21 years old and single;
  2. The applicant must be at least 25 years old; and
  3. The applicant must be at least 21 years older (but not more than 50 years older) than the child.

In addition, solitary male applicants are prohibited from adopting female children, and only married couples are allowed to jointly adopt children.

Notwithstanding the above, section 4(2) of the ACA confers upon the Court the power to make exceptions to the general rule where the child and the applicant are blood relatives, as well as in cases where both parties to the marriage are at least 25 years old, and they are trying to jointly adopt a child whose age is less than 21 years below their respective ages.
