Dear Sir/Madam,

I and my Wife are adopting a baby girl from my brother-in-law (My Wife's real younger brother). Baby Girl is just 5 day old and is a 2nd child to my brother-in-law.

I and my wife are permanent resident of Mumbai. Child's parents are also Permanantly Mumbai resident, however child's birth place is Palghar.

Kindly advise what is the entire adoption process and documentations to be done to legally adopt the child. How much time it will take to complete the legal process and cost involved.

My Age=37 Years

My Wife's Age=37 Years

Child's Birth Mother age=30 Years

Formally You take with your wife's consent in adoption your  brother in  laws baby girl and your brother in law and his wife with each others consent they give in adoption their baby girl before  a Homum called dutta Homam.. After this formality go for   Registration of Adoption where giving in Adoption  by the donor and taking in adoption by Adopter/sdonee should be clearly mentioned. Take signatures of 3 witnesses,


Cut out the homa etc.  Get the adoption registered first by contacting a advocate.  Then do your homa boma etc.


Firstly a deed of adoption has to be executed by natural mother father and adopted mother father and thereafter adoption deed has to be registered before sub registrar office then other formalities to be done.
