Can I claim time off to attend adoption appointments?
Yes, one of you (the one who intends to take adoption leave, that is the "primary adopter") has the right to take paid time off to attend up to five adoption appointments arranged by the adoption agency.
The other partner, if you are adopting jointly, has the right to take unpaid time off to attend up to two adoption appointments.
The maximum amount of time that can be taken for each appointment is 6.5 hours.
