Can I file a PIL against CARA decision to let me adopt a child when my divorce is subjudice.
I am 42 years old man living in Mumbai. I have two sons aged 11 and 7. I have filed for divorce with my legal spouse few months ago on grounds of cruelty and also have filed for custody of kids. she is likely to contest the same (so far one hearing date has passed in which she chose to remain absent). We are all presently living in the same house (allotted to me by my office). My legal spouse is non-working.
I recently applied for adoption of an orphaned child with CARA. However they have told that as per existing laws I cannot apply for adoption till my divorce matter is finalized by the court.
Can I approach Bombay High Court against the decision by CARA as the time taken for outcome of divorce case is not in my control and there is also age restriction as far as adoption of infants is concerned (which I believe is permitted up to 45 years of age). Please advise..
