What will a consultation with an adoption lawyer in Ukraine do for you?

Adopting a child is a complex and lengthy process with many nuances and risks. If you want to get a good understanding of it in order to understand what steps you need to take – we recommend an introductory consultation with our lawyers.

At the introductory consultation, our lawyer will answer all the questions you are interested in:

  • Analyse whether you have the opportunity to become an adoptive parent, and if not, tell you what to do to make it happen.

  • Will write out the whole complicated adoption procedure by steps.

  • Will estimate the possible risks and give recommendations on how to avoid them.

An introductory consultation gives you the opportunity to get detailed explanations from a specialist, not just formal answers. The lawyer is based on your situation, so takes into account all the nuances in order for you to achieve the goal and adopt a child in Ukraine without any problems.

In our company the cost of introductory consultation will be included in the amount of the main service when ordering it from us.

We also offer the development of the "Road Map". This is an opportunity for the Client to get a few different options for action. Our lawyer will make a step by step instruction to achieve your goal, which you will be able to use yourself. The cost of the "Road Map" is included in the price of the adoption service.


The price of legal support and advice on adoption procedure is calculated individually based on the Client’s situation. At first, we analyze the information provided by the Client and the available documents, and only then negotiate the service price. But in any case, this happens even before the beginning of cooperation.

The period of legal expertise of the adoption in Ukraine depends on the complexity of the situation, but on average it takes 1-2 business days.

Why us

We move it faster
Adoption is a quite complex process, which consists of a number of actions. But if you know the legal requirements, the adoption procedure will move much faster. Pravova Dopomoga Law Firm provides only professional legal assistance related to the legal procedure of adoption. Our company is not engaged in mediation activities in the adoption process.
We make the adoption process psychologically easier
Visiting government agencies and communicating with civil servants is stressful for many people. But if you apply to our company, our specialists will represent your interests at government agencies by proxy. And although in certain cases the personal presence of adoptive parents is required, their communication with government officials is minimized. This is especially true in case of international adoption.

We are ready to help you!

Who can become an adopter

  • The adopter may be a legally capable person who has reached the age of 21 (except if the adopter is a relative of the child).
  • The adopter may be a person who is at least 15 years older than the child to be adopted.
  • Adopters may be not only spouses, but also persons who are not married (provided that they are citizens of Ukraine).

State guarantees for the adoption of a child

An adopted child is entitled to a pension and other social benefits, as well as to compensation for loss of the breadwinner.

Answers to frequently asked questions

Can I become an adopter with an unofficial income?

Persons wishing to become adoptive parents must provide a document confirming their income for the last six months. Such documents include salary certificates or income declarations. If none of these documents specify your income, you won’t be registered as a candidate for adoption.

May a person who is a partner in a civil union adopt a child?

The law provides that Ukrainian citizens may become adoptive parents even if they are not married. However, if the spouses want to adopt the same child, it is the spouses who will be given the preferential right. Therefore, it makes sense to legalize your marriage and be a family by law.

Adoption of a child in Ukraine: Legal assistance
