NOTE: IMP RULES OF ADOPTION

Section 8 of the Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act recognises the right among other female Hindus, of a widow to adopt a son or daughter to herself. Under the law prevailing prior to the Hindu Succession Act, 1956 no female including a wife or a widow could adopt a son to herself. The effect of adoption by a widow of a son or daughter is that for all purposes the adoptee becomes the son or daughter not only of the widow but her deceased husband as well with the same status as that of a natural-born child with all the consequences and incidents of that status including succession to all their relations.

After an adoption the adopted child shall be deemed to be the child of his or her adoptive parents with all the legal incidents and rights flowing therefrom as that of an after-born natural son or natural daughter of the adoptive parents. sec. 12 lays down that the adopted child shall not divest any person of any estate which vested in him or her before the adoption hence it does not preclude the adopted child from claiming his share in the joint family properties, for if a share is given to the adopted child there is no question of divesting any person of any estate which vested in him before adoption.

According to sec. 10 the person to be adopted should not have completed the age of fifteen years, unless there is a custom or usage whch permits persons who have completed the age of fifteen years being taken in adoption.
