Question :

I’m interested in adopting a child from an orphanage center. Could you please provide detailed guidance on the adoption procedure?


  1. To initiate the process of child adoption, you can directly apply before the presiding Officer, Child Protection Bureau, Lahore as current regulations prohibit orphanage centers from facilitating such placements. We can assist by filing the application on your behalf, streamlining the process to minimize hassles. Please note that there may be a waiting period due to a high number of applications. Upon submission, the presiding officer will schedule an interview. The approval of your application will be based on this interview. As part of the adoption procedure, you are required to purchase bonds worth Rs. 1,000,000/- or provide property of equivalent value in the child’s name. Once approved, the court will officially transfer custody to you. Subsequently, it is essential to register the child’s name with NADRA in your name to complete the legal adoption process. Please be aware that this is a simplified overview, and for accurate and personalized guidance, it is recommended to consult with legal professionals at Pak-Lawyer Associates
