A direct placement occurs when the birth parents and prospective adoptive parents already know each other and are making adoption plans. The Adoption Centre of British Columbia can also guide you through this somewhat less complex adoption process.
- Complete counselling, education, and legal information are provided to both birth parents and adoptive family.
- A detailed report (Pre Placement Report) is completed of the applicants, and a medical and social history of the child is also compiled.
- All necessary court and ministry documentation is completed.
There are many steps of the adoption process as outlined in the Adoption Act of British Columbia that need to be completed prior to placement and so it is important to keep this in mind as much as possible prior to planning. If you have questions about the timing of the placement and the adoption requriements, please contact us.
Please note, that costs can vary according to individual cases. Contact us for an information package and applicable fee schedule.
