International Adoption FAQs

international adoptionAdoption can be a long and complicated process, particularly international adoption. However, it is also a very rewarding one, which is why so many people choose to adopt internationally. Of course, there are a ton of questions that people have and can be answered by a family law attorney Greensboro NC. Here are a few of them:

Why Do People Choose to Adopt From Other Countries?

There are a few key reasons why people choose to adopt children from foreign countries, rather than the United States. For one, there is a decrease in the amount of adoptable children in the United States. Furthermore, different laws and regulations surrounding adoption may make adopting a foreign child more appealing for some couples. Of course, there is also a layer of American couples who feel that adopting a child from a less developed country may offer that child a better life.

What are the Risks to International Adoption?

You need to be aware of foreign laws and how they are changing, otherwise you’re at risk of losing out on the child who you have put in extensive time and effort to adopt. Oftentimes, these laws aren’t something an American family attorney can help you with, either. Communication can also become difficult, as there is often a language barrier when going through an international adoption.

Should I Work With an Agency or a Facilitator?

It is generally not recommended by the United States government to not use a facilitator, and instead go through an adoption agency that would actually be licensed to assist you. You also do need an adoption agency, along with an attorney, to adopt a child internationally.
