Decades of forced adoption in Australia left thousands of individuals and families without a proper connection to each other.
The Australian Government at the time allowed this practice, and over the last 30 years the subsequent consequences to both mother and child have been ignored and suppressed, with many suffering severe trauma. Porters Lawyers have represented and taken class action out on institutions and hospitals involved in this process. The team at Porters strive to find their clients a legal and compassionate resolution.
