Dedicated Representation Throughout the Adoption Process
Foreign adoptions can be very rewarding. However, the path to a successful adoption can be fraught with complications. One of the most important aspects of a foreign adoption is ensuring that the child receives full U.S. citizenship and all of the benefits that come along with this. Depending on the case, an adoption may need to be finalized in the child’s country of birth. If this occurs, it is usually a requirement to domesticate the adoption when you return to the U.S. This is a relatively straightforward process that in effect means you will be “re-adopting” your child on U.S. shores.
If an adoption is not finalized in the child’s home country, more stringent adoption laws in either North Carolina or South Carolina will need to be met before a state birth certificate may be issued. In either case, you can rely on myself and the legal team at The Law Office of Christi A. Misocky, P.C., to always be working with your best interests in mind. We will keep you informed of the status of your case every step of the way to help ensure a smooth and satisfying adoption.
