This answer was rated:

I am a UK resident and wish to adopt an adult to make them my legal heir. The adult is 23yrs old and from Romania, whilst I am a UK citizen. In the UK one cannot adopt an adult.
Would I be able to do this in Germany as we are both European Citizens and both very much wish for the adoption to happen?
Kind Regards, Jon

Dear Customer,

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much for your question.

 

Yes it is possible.

 

For this adoption you or the adult would have to be a permanent resident in Germany because otherwise the German Family Law Court does not have jurisdiction.

 

 

 

The law is § 187 FamFG

 

 

 

I hope I was able to help If so please rate my answer positively thank you so much
