Court gives go-ahead for adoption by gay couple in first for Malta

A gay couple has become the first in Malta to adopt a child in the wake of its civil union.

One News reported that the go-ahead for adoption was given by the Family Court yesterday for the adoption by the two men.  

The Civil Unions law gives same-sex couples the same rights as in marriage, including the right to adopt, although gay adoptions were never technically illegal.  

The adoption process is centred around an assessment of the suitability of the applicants by the Family Court.
