Adoption & Guardianship

The process of welcoming a child into your home and family is heartwarming, but it can also be challenging when it comes to legal proceedings. No matter what your situation entails, we are ready to discuss your options with you.


Whether an adoptive parent or a birth parent, our team is here to help you understand your rights and obligations as you navigate the complexities of adoption.

Regardless of the type of adoption you are pursuing (agency adoption, relative and step-parent adoption, out of province adoption, or contested adoption), the team at Evolve Family Law is here to handle the legalities of your situation so that your efforts can remain focused on your growing family.


While guardianship is usually maintained by an individual’s next of kin, there are times when this person is unavailable to undertake the responsibilities of a guardian. In this instance, another family member or concerned friend may apply for guardianship.

For concerns regarding guardianship of a child or guardianship and co-decision-making for dependent adults, the Evolve Family Law team has the experience to assist with your situation.

For more information on adoption and guardianship, reach out to our qualified team. We are more than happy to help you.
