Interstate/International Adoptions

Interstate adoptions can be more complex than an adoption in which the birth parents and adoptive parents live in the same state. The "Interstate Compact on Placement of Children" (ICPC) regulates interstate adoptions, and both parties must comply with the laws of the "sending" state and those of the "receiving" state. I have experience with interstate adoptions, and understand the complexities that may arise when two states' laws intersect.


Interstate/International Adoption

Adoption laws differ from state to state and from country to country. I assist families who are adopting a child from another state or another country to manage the often confusing adoption process. In the arena of international adoption, the law may be undeveloped, or the country may suddenly open or close adoption across their borders. I stay on top of changing adoption laws and can support you through the sometimes lengthy process of an international adoption.
