In urgent or seriously problematic circumstances, the situation of a child who is the subject of an application for recognition of the decision granting an adoption made abroad may be referred to the director by the court or by any person acting in the child’s interest. The director shall take charge of the situation of the child and see that the necessary measures provided by law for the child’s protection are carried out.
Where the director takes charge of a child after the child’s adoption, whether granted in Québec or outside Québec, he must inform the Minister and, on request, send him all the information necessary for the exercise of his responsibilities.
