This long-awaited, comprehensively updated third edition of Adoption of Children in Scotland takes account of the fundamental changes brought about by the provisions on adoption contained in the Children (Scotland) Act 1995. One of the most significant amendments made to the Adoption (Scotland) Act 1978 by the Children (Scotland) Act 1995, is that the welfare of the child is now the 'paramount consideration' and that welfare is to be considered 'throughout his life'. The 1995 Act also revises the position and role of the natural parent, the step-parent and the curator ad litem as well as that of the children's hearing. The author thoroughly examines the implications of these changes in a practical style. This book contains a full text copy of the Adoption (Scotland) Act 1978, as amended, and the rules of court, as well as numerous styles of writs, interlocutors and reports, making this an invaluable tool for all those whose remit involves children and the law.
