Adoption Case Record

An Adoption Case Record on a child should be opened once adoption has been identified as the permanence plan for the child at his or her Looked After Review or where a child has been relinquished for adoption, as soon as the parent's request for adoption has been made. Where the plan relates to a group of siblings, there must be a separate adoption case record for each child.

An Adoption Case Record on a prospective adoptive parent should be opened as soon as an application is received to be considered as an adoptive parent.
