Once you bring your child home from his/her country of origin, you may not be finished. We can assist you with the final steps of your foreign adoption or guardianship. We can help you domesticate your foreign decree or finalize your adoption to obtain a Georgia Certificate of Birth, and ensure that your child become a United States citizen. We have handled adoptions from many countries including China, India, Peru, Guatemala, Bulgaria, Russia, Latvia, Ukraine, South Korea, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Ethiopia, Uganda, D.R. Congo, and Taiwan.
Whether you are working with an agency within the State of Georgia or out of state, with a private or foster care agency, we can help. We will work with you and your agency to ensure that your adoption is finalized as smoothly and quickly as possible to give you peace of mind. We will take care of all the details so you can focus on your new family.
Are you considering an independent, non-agency adoption? We can educate and counsel you on your options, and guide you through each step of the process. We will work with you before and after you have been matched with a birth mother or have identified a child available for adoption. It is important that you understand what you are legally able to provide for the birth parents. You must also consider what type of relationship you would like with the child's birth family. We can help you navigate the numerous facits of an independent adoption including whether to have an open adoption, the types of post-adoption relationships to consider, and the pros and cons of post adoption contact agreements.
