In our latest episode of OAL Lawspectives, we delve into the profound topic of Child Adoption in Nigeria. Our experts, Mary-cynthia Okundaye and Omolola Ajibola, shed light on this legal process.

Key Insights:

  • Legal Bond: Child adoption formalizes the unique, legal bond between adoptive parents and the child. Abandonment of the child by the adoptive parents is a punishable offense.
  • Decision-Making Authority: It grants adoptive parents the legal authority to make significant decisions regarding the child’s future, including religion, education, and discipline methods.
  • Unchanging Commitment: Similar to a biological parent-child relationship, adoption is a lifelong commitment, bound by love and legal agreements.
