3:00 pm – 4:00 pm Navigating the Path from Unofficial Adoptions to Legal Adoptions

About this talk

Many well-intended parents have adopted children through unofficial or informal means, sometimes with birth certificates which refer to them as the birth parents. The initial years often go by without issue, but questions and problems arise when it is time to apply for a Malaysian Identity Card or to renew a passport as a teenager. Join our speakers to understand what difficulties might arise from unofficial adoptions, how to preempt or deal with these issues as they arise, and their impact on the citizenship of the child. Parents who are thinking about adopting a child will also benefit from understanding the legal adoption process.

The talk will be delivered over video conference using You can either view the talk from your web browser or download the Zoom app.
