Free text The UK 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 UK 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?
