Intercountry Adoption

For prospective U.S. parents adopting children from other countries, intercountry adoptions are governed by the laws of the United States as well as the laws of the country where the child resides.  The Hague Convention on the Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption is an international agreement which may also impact adoptions between member countries.
