Adopting after Legal Guardianship

The Legal guardianship Order usually states that the Applicants are permitted to immigrate with the child to the United States of America (Home Country) in order to fulfil their obligations as Legal Guardians. In most cases, the Legal Guardianship Orders do not expressly state that the Applicants are permitted to petition for adoption of the child in their home Country.

Adoption Documents Required

The success of an Adoption and legal guardianship Application in Uganda depends a lot on whether the Applicants have requisite documents in support of their Application. It is not uncommon for Judges to adjourn cases to enable the lawyers organize the necessary court documents and then obtain another hearing date. The costs associated with such adjournments can be reduced by ensuring that the necessary documents are in place before the hearing date.
