Adoption Triangle Law and Legal Definition
Adoption triad is the term used to represent the three parties involved in an adoption: the child, the adoptive parents, and the birthmother. An adoption triangle represents the three-sided relationship that exists in an adoption between birth parents, adoptive parents, and the adoptee. Each of the three sides are interrelated and inter-dependent on the others. An adoption triangle is also termed adoption triad.
Information relating to the identity and whereabouts of any of the parties to an adoption triangle must be released only under compelling circumstances. [In re Assalone, 512 A.2d 1383 (R.I. 1986).].
