Final Adoption

 

Once supervision is completed and the Affidavit of Consent to finalize adoption is obtained, adoptive parents should proceed to file a petition for legal adoption with the Family Court.

There are attorneys in the State who handle international adoption cases. A list of these attorneys is available at RESOURCES FOR LIFE or you mayretain your own attorney to assist you.

Upon completion of the court proceedings, an Adoption Decree is issued by the Court. A copy of this decree is forwarded to ICAB.
