If you adopted a child while you were outside Australia, “the adoptive parent`s intention to be outside Australia may be related to the adoption of the child, that is just one consideration among others.” The Regulation amends the 1998 Family Law Rules (Bilateral Agreements – Transnational Adoption) (the main regulations) by including Taiwan`s Overseas Jurisdiction, the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (Ethiopia) as overseas jurisdictions in Schedule 1. The enumeration of these legal orders means that children who have been or will be adopted under country adoption programs with Taiwan, South Korea or Ethiopia in Australia will benefit from these provisions of the main regulation, which provide for automatic recognition of adoptions in Australia, which take effect in prescribed overseas jurisdictions. Specific needs: Specific needs in the Australian adoption context are the amount of resources or support services that the adoptive father and/or adoptive family need to promote healthy development and well-being, support a positive family life and prevent adoption disorders. Specific needs are studied using a continuum of needs, subdivided into the following categories: no additional care needs, low need for additional care, and moderate to substantial additional needs. In this issue, we will focus only on this scenario. For expats considering the private adoption process, it is first important that you have been living outside Australia for more than 12 months before the application was submitted.
