Keywords: Implementation of Child Adoption, Perigi Raja Village


Adoption is a legal act that transfers a child from the sphere of authority of the parents, legal guardians or other persons who are responsible for the care, education and upbringing of the child into the environment of the adoptive parents' family. Juridically, adopting a child must go through a court ruling process so that the adoptive parent's family can easily care for, educate, control the development and growth of the child so that his life is guaranteed and will not cause legal problems in the future. In practice, the adoption of children by the people of Perigi Raja Village, Indragiri Hilir Regency does not go through a court decision process, those who adopt children only do so through a customary process, namely in a kinship manner based on an agreement between the biological family and the prospective adoptive family of the child to be adopted.
