When a kid is adopted, his or her biological parents legally relinquish all parental rights and responsibilities to the adoptive parents. Multiple conditions and abilities must be met for an adoption to be legal. The process of adoption is governed by a codified set of rules and regulations. Progressive cultures, on the other hand, place a premium on maintenance, whether for the spouse or for children or other dependents. This area of the law is evolving and being updated to meet the changing requirements of the State. The purpose of this article is to describe all such laws in a concise but thorough manner. The Indian legal system has developed a number of important provisions that are discussed in this article. Additionally, an effort has been made to combine the substantive and procedural aspects of the law into a single body, with the hope that this would improve our ability to comprehend how these rules really operate.
