Did you know that there are two different ways to adopt a child in Malaysia? Court adoptions under the Adoption Act 1952 involve a formal court application and result in a court adoption order. However, this option is only available to non-Muslims. Both Muslims and non-Muslims can apply for a departmental adoption and obtain a certificate of adoption under the Registration of Adoptions Act 1952. Join us for this online talk in which our speakers will explain the process involved for adoptions under the Adoption Act 1952 and the Registration of Adoptions Act 1952.
