International Adoption in South Carolina

Family Law Attorneys Serving Greenville Since 1975

Since 1999, nearly 300,000 American families have adoption children from overseas, and thousands more adopt children from foreign countries every year. It is a tedious process, but it is often quite rewarding for those involved. If you are interested in adopting a child from another country, there are a few things you need to be prepared for when navigating the adoption process.

Complicating Factors in International Adoption

What makes it so challenging? International adoption is notoriously complex for a number of reasons, starting with the following:

  • Communication between international adoption agencies
  • Time, effort, and expense required to identify and connect prospective parents with available children
  • Ensuring both governments’ adoption laws are followed and necessary paperwork is completed properly and on-time
  • Obtaining potential adoptees’ important legal documents, such as birth certificates

Though certainly more demanding than domestic adoption, international adoption is well worth the effort, cost, and time spent. However, there is much more that goes into it and you will need a great deal of support to make it happen. If you have decided to adopt a child from overseas, you will need an experienced family lawyer who has the right knowledge and experience to advise you throughout the process.
