Lakewood Family Lawyer For International Adoptions

In addition to all of the other requirements for adoption, international adoption presents unique challenges. International adoption requires compliance with both United States law and the law of the child’s birth country. There are two processes, the Hague Convention process for countries that are party to the Hague Convention and a separate process for adoptions out of countries that are not party to the Hague Convention.

If you live in Colorado, contact our Lakewood law firm for more information regarding your international adoption today.

Assisting With All Of Your International Adoption Needs

Two essential determinations are made in international adoption. The first, as in any adoption, is the suitability of the adoptive parents. A background check and home study will be performed to determine the adoptive parents’ fitness. The second determination requires that the child be eligible to immigrate to the United States. The child must obtain a United States visa before he or she may enter the United States. The immigrant visa process is complicated as is the adoption process and our experienced attorneys can help.
