Adoption: How to apply

The only people who can apply to the review panel are those whose adoption agency notifies them that it does not consider them suitable to be adoptive parents or withdraws their approval.

Making your application

Your application must include the following:

  • The reasons why you disagree with your adoption agency’s determination;
  • the date of the letter advising you of your qualifying determination
  • the name and address of your adoption agency.

You must make your application within 40 working days from the date of the adoption agency’s letter.

You can send your application to us by post or email. It is important that you do not send your application to any other address since this will delay the review panel considering your application.
