Hi thereI am happy to pay for a legal opinion on the law

Resolved Question:

Hi there I am happy to pay for a legal opinion on the law governing Gay adoption in the UK. I know it is the Children and Adoption Act 2002 which came into force in 2005, but need a summary of the law by a lawyer to get translated so that I can complete the adoption of my two (currently) French children in the French courts...any takers? MANY THANKS. Pls email***@******.***

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Could you explain why you need this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The French court asked for a summary of the law in UK to ensure that gay couples have the right to adopt in the UK before they will enforce the new French law allowing gay married couples to adopt their partner's children, and approve my adoption request. I think they want to be sure they are not in contradiction of the UK law (as I am a British citizen although I live in France).

You can in fact find the information already in existence here
