Adopting a child in BitLife is a milestone you might be after, especially if you’re completing the Change of Heart Challenge. The challenge requires you to adopt a child after escaping prison, which isn’t as straightforward as doing so under just about any other circumstances. Here’s how to adopt with a criminal record in BitLife.

How to Adopt with a Criminal Record

BitLife is full of choices to make, like whether or not you’re going to be a standout Bitizen or a troublemaker and commit some crimes. Either way, you might want to start a family someday. The Change of Hearts will transform you from an outright criminal to a loving parent, but you’ll discover that you can’t outright adopt once you have a criminal record. I found two solutions to help you complete the challenge.

  • Emigrate illegally to another country and adopt.
  • Purchase a Golden Passport for $5.58 and emigrate legally.

If you have a criminal record or have been to prison you won’t be able to adopt a child. There’s one way around this, and that’s to pack your bags and Emigrate to another country. You’ll get denied if you apply to emigrate with a criminal record, and after being denied you’ll select the Emigrate Illegally option. You can refresh your list of emigration countries if you don’t see one you want to emigrate to.

After you move to a new country they will not recognize you and you’ll be able to adopt a child. There is an alternative way to emigrate legally using the Golden Passport, but I don’t necessarily recommend it because it’s an in-game purchase that costs $5.58, and you can easily avoid it by emigrating illegally. 

Well, that’s it for how to adopt with a criminal record in BitLife.  For more guides and challenge tips, check out our growing BitLife guides hub here.
