Ms. Cathy Hite of the Law Clinic at Emalus Campus speaking to the students of PDLP via zoom on adoption in the Solomon Islands.

According to Ms. Hite one of the issues faced right now in relation to adoption is when a biological parent gives a child up to some relative to look after… and then when the biological is in a good place again after a few years, they come and take the child. What rights do customary adoptive parents have when this happens?
What about the best interests of the child- they’ve been living with their adoptive parents all this time and all of a sudden they are taken from them to live with their biological parents - how does this affect a child?

Ms. Cathy Hite of the Law Clinic at Emalus Campus speaking to the students of PDLP via zoom on matrimonial property distribution and adoption in the Solomon Islands.

Important takeaway from this presentation: whilst custom marriages are recognised as legal marriages, when it comes to property distribution, then unless the custom marriage is registered under the Islanders Marriage Act.
