Step-parent adoption (non-agency adoptions)
In West Yorkshire all adoption services are delivered by One Adoption. If you live in West Yorkshire you can attend a briefing on adopting your partner’s child to find out more about the process and help you decide whether it is right for your family. Following the briefing you will be given further information about how to apply should you still wish to do so.
You will need to visit the One Adoption West Yorkshire website Partner or step parent adoption | One Adoption
Here you can book yourself and your partner on to an online Partner Adoption/Non-Agency Adoption Briefing (not the Adoption Information Event). You will need to attend as a couple and no child should be present during the briefing (including the young person who may become adopted).
