No couple adopts a child with plans to divorce. However, circumstances may occur where you and your partner decide to split amicably. So, what happens to your adopted child?
After a divorce, both partners have parental legal rights of their kid/s. Hence, you or your partner can seek custody of the adopted child. However, the court usually determines child custody based on their best interests.
Additionally, adopted children have the same rights as birth children in a divorce. For example, they have a right to financial support from both parents.
