Adoption creates a link to filiation between the enabler and the adopted.

A single person or a married, married or cohabiting couple may adopt a minor or an adult, a French or a foreigner.

Adoption can be simple or plenary. In the case of simple adoption, links with the family of origin are maintained. In the case of full adoption, on the other hand, there is a total breakdown of the adopted person's ties with his or her family of origin.

It is the enabler who must apply for adoption.
