Adoption Country Information
Intercountry adoptions are governed by both the laws of the child’s home country and the laws of the United States .  In fact, when adopting you must comply with three different sets of laws:  U.S. federal law, the laws of the child’s country of birth, and the laws of your U.S. state of residence.   Learn about the U.S. requirements for intercountry adoption in the About Adoption tab of this website. 

To help you navigate the adoption process in a specific country, we offer Country Information.  For each country, this Country Information describes whether a country is party to the Hague Adoption Convention.  It names a country’s adoption authority and describes the eligibility requirements for prospective adoptive parents and for children to be adopted.  In addition, the Country Information offers key contact information, information about the role of the court and adoption agencies, as well as adoption statistics. 

Note:  We are in the process of finalizing Country Information for all countries.  If the country from which you are considering adopting is not currently listed, please check back soon or contact our office for more information.

We also recommend paying attention to our Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts before traveling.  Travel Warnings are issued when the State Department recommends that Americans avoid a certain country.  We issue Travel Alerts to disseminate information quickly about terrorist threats and other relatively short-term conditions that pose significant risks or disruptions to Americans.

The Department of State provides additional Background Notes on every country in the world.  The Background Notes include facts about the land, people, history, government, political conditions, economy, and foreign relations of each country.

How to Adopt

Intercountry adoptions are governed by both the laws of the child’s home country and the laws of the United States.  In fact, when adopting you must comply with three different sets of laws:  U.S. federal law, the laws of the child’s country of birth, and the laws of your U.S. state of residence.  

The time it takes to adopt a child from another country and bring that child to the United States varies widely.   Generally intercountry adoption takes 1-4 years, though it can take longer.  The length of time depends on a number of factors, including the country’s procedures, the agency’s process, the U.S. immigration process, and the specific circumstances of the adoption. 

The cost of adoption services for intercountry adoption also varies widely from case to case.   Many Adoption services can cost as much as $30,000 per case.  An adoption agency should specify all expected costs that would be associated with your adoption before you sign an adoption services contract with that agency.   (This is required by federal law if you are adopting from a Convention country.)

Hague Adoption Convention
The United States is part of an important treaty on intercountry adoption called the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Hague Adoption Convention).  The treaty governs adoptions between the United States and approximately 75 other countries.  The process of adopting a child from a Convention country differs in several key ways from adoption a child from a country not party to the Convention. 

Support During the Process
Adopting a child from abroad takes patience and determination.  Not only is the intercountry adoption process complex, but unexpected complications may arise. Because the process can take so long, finding emotional support during this time can be helpful.  You may also find it beneficial to consult with other parents or support groups about issues and concerns associated with adoption.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
blog could definitely be one of the greatest in its field.
Superb blog! https://918.network/casino-games/75-ace3 33
