International Adoption

Full Video Transcript

International adoptions are a popular choice for many Americans for various reasons. One of these reasons, however, is generally not the ease of the process. International adoptions involve a variety of complex laws that are compounded by additional layers of immigration law. These adoptions usually involve many meetings and interviews, and may even require the prospective parent visit the child’s home country and submit to additional interviews and thorough background checks. International adoptions may take years, and can cost much more than a domestic adoption. However, the process may be made easier if the child’s country is a party to the Hague Convention.
