Adoption Does Not Sever Relationship With Biological Father, Even If He Renounces Right As Father: Madras HC

The Madras High Court, in a judgment delivered recently, refused to substitute in the birth certificate of a minor girl the name of her adoptive father, who is her biological mother’s second husband, in place of her deceased biological father’s name. The court was hearing the plea under Section 56 (2) of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 read with Regulations 52(4) and 55(2) of the Adoption Regulations praying to appoint the adoptive father (the biological mother having agreed to give the child in adoption to her second husband) of the person of the minor female child so that the latter is entitled to the legal status of biological daughter with all the rights of succession and inheritance and for all purposes allowed by the law.
