Resource Description

Evaluate the effectiveness of the law in achieving justice for all parties involved in relationship breakdowns”

INTRO: Adoption is the legal process which permanently transfers all the legal rights and responsibilities of being a parent from the child’s birth parents to the adoptive parents. As adoption is within state jurisdiction the governing legislation for Adoption in NSW is The Adoption act 2000 (NSW.) However, whilst there as has been positive reform toward ‘open adoption’ the current legal processes and legislation in NSW have not been effective in achieving justice for families in the adoption process, as they have not been accessible, flexible, and have not met society’s needs. Thus, the legal system is lacking responsiveness in this area of family law.
