Burton to launch Bill to address illegal adoptions – Thurs 11am Buswells
Labour TD Joan Burton will today, Thursday 24th January publish a new bill that would address the problems caused by illegal adoptions where people were not provided with an adoption certificate but rather a false birth certificate without any evidence of their adoption.
The launch will take place in the Boardroom in Buswells at 11am, and Deputy Burton will be joined by individuals affected by so called informal or ‘illegal’ adoptions.
The Bill will define the process of informal adoption and provide for a valid adoption order to replace false birth certificates, and ensure that birth certificates that were issued can be used as evidence of a relationship in civil proceedings.
What: Launch of bill to address informal adoptions.
When: 11am, Thursday 24th January.
Where: Boardroom, Buswells Hotel.
