Orange County Hague Adoptions Attorney
I am very familiar with the Hague and non-Hague adoption process. Once the adoption process is complete in the foreign country, the petition for certification as adoptive parents must be filed in the family court in the State of residence of the adoptive parents.
All adoptions require a home study, which involves a social worker visiting the potential adoptive parents’ home. The parents will also be subject to a criminal background check. If everything goes well, I can then assist my clients in filing Petition for a precertification as a qualified adoptive parents and proceed with the adoption. It can be a time-consuming process, so it is important to hire a lawyer who has experience with intercountry adoptions.
