Man prevented from adopting stepdaughter

Category: Capital Radio News

A Canberra man seeking to adopt his adult stepdaughter has had his application stalled because it falls between the cracks of outdated legislation.

The 24-year-old woman had been under the man's care since she was just one and wanted to be formally adopted by him before getting married.

The application's been adjourned due to a jurisdictional technicality because the man lives just on the NSW side of the ACT/NSW border.
