Allahabad HC Allows Woman’s Plea To Give Her Child In Adoption To Her New Husband
Renunciation of the child by a parent can be taken into consideration while determining whether the power to give in adoption has been delegated or to determine the consent to giving in adoption, the court observed.
In the facts of the case, the court said: “Biological father of the child, in the present case has abandoned him; rather has renounced him and has not performed any of his duties, which he owes to the child. He has also given up all his rights, including the right of visitation.
Allowing the plea, the court said: “If the biological father in this case has not taken any measures to bear his responsibility, the laws and the Court will hesitate to grant any such right in favour of a parent who has failed to do so.”
