Adoption Act 2000 No 75
Current version for 27 June 2017 to date (accessed 22 September 2017 at 03:47)
36   Alternatives to placement for adoption to be considered
An Aboriginal child is not to be placed for adoption unless the Secretary is satisfied that the making of the adoption order is clearly preferable in the best interests of the child to any other action that could be taken by law in relation to the care of the child.
 Examples of other action that may be taken by law are the making of a care order under the Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998 or a parenting order under the Family Law Act 1975 of the Commonwealth.
