Abstract: By 'Legal Relationship' we are here understanding specifically that special relationship in law that arises between an adopter and the person adopted by him in any way which, according to the laws of the country, constitutes a true legal adoption. This special relationship lies in the fact that, once legal adoption has truly taken place to the full satisfaction of the law, in the eyes of the law in most respects and almost as a general rule the adopted child assumes the same relationship to the adopter (or adopting spouses) as any child born in lawful marriage bears to his parents.
