The methodological norms to enforcing the Law on Adoptions, modified and completed at the beginning of the year were approved by the Government through a Decision, says a release sent to Agerpres on Thursday.
The norms establish, among other things, that the lawfulness of the certificate of adoptive family is prolonged to two years, from one, as well as the granting of a maximum one year of leave of adjustment and of the monthly allowance during this leave.
According to the source, the forms used in the adoption procedure were halved through the new normative act – 12 of which being cancelled and four simplified.
“The administrative intermediary stages, namely the paper correspondence between the General Departments of Child Social Care and Protection (DGASPC) and the National Authority for the Rights of Child Protection and Adoption (ANPDCA) referring to the filling in of the National Register for Adoptions (RNA) was eliminated. The introduction in the RNA of the data referring to the child and family will be done directly at the level of the general departments of child social care and protection, a basic level these data are collected and/or produced at,” says the release.
