Navigating adoption in Singapore

Adoption begins with understanding the eligibility criteria. To adopt a child in Singapore, the following requirements must be met:

  • Child's age and marital status: The child must be below 21 years old and single.
  • Applicant's age: The applicant must be at least 25 years old.
  • Age gap: The applicant must be at least 21 years older (but not more than 50 years older) than the child.

Moreover, solitary male applicants are not permitted to adopt female children, and joint adoption is restricted to married couples. The Adoption of Children Act (ACA) grants the Court the power to make exceptions to these requirements. Exceptions may be made in cases where the child and the applicant are blood relatives, or when both parties in a marriage are at least 25 years old, and they seek to jointly adopt a child less than 21 years below their respective ages.

Consent plays a pivotal role in adoption proceedings, and relevant parties must provide their consent, including:

  • The child's parents.
  • The child's grandparents (if the child's parents are below 21 years old).
  • The child's guardian (if applicable).
  • The child's custodian (in cases of non-parent custody).
  • The financial supporter of the child (if not the child's parents).
  • The applicant's spouse (if applicable).

Adoption orders can be unconditional, conditional (with specific conditions set by the court), or interim (with probationary terms). Your journey towards adoption begins with us, and we're here to guide you every step of the way. Contact us today for a confidential consultation.
