    The rules for adoption in Singapore can be found in the Adoption of Children Act (ACA). Requirements include the parent being at least 21 years older than the child, the parent being 25 or above, and the parent not being more than 50 years older than the child. Other requirements such as welfare of the child must be satisfied to the court, and there must not have been any payment or reward for adopting the child. Consent must also have been obtained from relevant persons.
