Why an international adoption?
International adoption is an attractive method by which to build a family. Advantages include relative speed to completion, finality, and irrevocability.
Can I specify the gender and age of the child I want to adopt?
Yes. We believe that recognizing and accepting these preferences will lead to a more successful adoption experience.
Can I adopt a sibling group and how would that affect the expense?
Yes. Our agency fee remains the same as it would be for one child, but overseas expenses will increase.
How are your fees determined and what services do they cover?
The fee structure is divided into several parts:
Paperwork and Dossier Preparation,
Multi-Source Fees and our Agency Fees.
Travel expenses are not included.
Please, come to one of our informational seminars or call our office for more detailed information regarding our fees.
Will I have to pay the entire fee in advance?
No, fees will be charged at each step in the process and cover only the work done on your behalf to that point. These steps include:
* Initiation of the homestudy process
* Initiation of document preparation
* Foreign file initiation after INS approval
* Multi-source fee
* Our Agency Fee is due a week before you travel to pick up your child
Is the adoption final?
Yes. You will return home with a legally adopted child, and neither the child's birth parents nor the country of origin can revoke the adoption. When you bring your child into the U.S. following the adoption, he or she automatically becomes a U.S. citizen.
