The child must not be fifteen years of age or older, unless this is normal again or the use applies to the parties involved. Adoption can only take place if no same-sex child of the adopted child is still living at home. In particular, if a son is to be adopted, the adoptive father or mother must not have a legitimate or adoptive son who is still living in the house.  Later, various concepts and perspectives were added to the adoption. The modern concept is that it is an act of a person who takes a child (son or daughter) into legal custody, and through adoption, the adopted child has all the legal rights and status of a natural son. A widow can adopt a child for herself and becomes the adoptive mother of the child after the adoption. A son adopted by a Hindu widow would also be considered the son of her deceased husband . In Section 6, there are four important requirements for a valid adoption ~ (a) The person adopting should have the capacity and right to adopt an adoption. (b) The person who adopts should also be able to do so. (c) the adopted person should be able to be adopted.
d) Acceptance must be made in accordance with other legal provisions. Under earlier Hindu law, adoption was considered sacramental rather than secular. This law applies to Hindus and all those who are considered under the umbrella term Hindus, which includes: 4. The legal guardian with the permission of the competent court, if the father and mother of the child are deceased or have completely renounced the world or have abandoned the child or have been declared mentally healthy by the competent court. It is important that the court be satisfied that the adoption is justified in the best interests of the child and that all the needs and wishes of the child are met by the adoptive parents with regard to his or her age and understanding of age. Article 10 provides that no person may be given up for adoption unless the following four conditions are met: (i) he is Hindu; (ii) it has not yet been adopted; (iii) he is not married, unless there is a custom or usage applicable to the parties which permits it: to adopt married persons for the purpose of adoption; and (iv) he has not attained the age of fifteen, unless there is a custom or usage of the parties which permits the adoption of persons over fifteen years of age. Section 9 of the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act, 1956 lists persons who may be properly adopted. Only the father or guardian of a child may give it up for adoption. This initiative is welcome and necessary because in the past, the adoption process was so long that the time it took to find a child to adopt that would suit the parents` preferences took years and years, and if a child was finally found for adoption, he or she would have passed the age of adoption.
But because of this new body, an orphan who deserves a better life will never be stuck without a family. iv. the child to be adopted must actually be given and adopted by or under the supervision of the parents concerned or the guardian with the intention of removing the child from his or her birth family, or A married woman may give her consent to adoption only through her husband. A married woman whose husband adopts a child should be considered a mother.  If the child is adopted and there is more than one woman in the household, the eldest wife is considered the legal mother of the adopted child.  III. the same child may not be adopted simultaneously by two or more persons; iv. The child to be adopted must actually be surrendered and put up for adoption by the parent or guardian concerned or under the supervision of the parent or guardian concerned in order to transfer the child from his or her birth family or to take into account the importance of the adoption. The law does not describe the hypothesis, but in a Hindu law it derives from the uncodified Hindu laws of Dharamsastra, especially Manusmriti. Adoption was described in Manusmriti as “taking someone else`s son and raising him as his own.” The Adoption Act allows a person without children to appropriate someone else`s child. Section 18 (2) of the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act contains a list of cases in which a woman is entitled to maintenance. According to this article, a woman can live apart from her husband and always has the right to claim maintenance in the following situations: When adopting a child, a person must meet certain additional conditions, as well as all the above conditions.
Section 19 of the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act says the same thing, but the stepfather is only liable for maintenance if: If the wife is widowed by her deceased husband, it is the father-in-law`s duty to take care of her.
