International Re-Adoptions

International Readoptions

Overview

“There are no unwanted children, just unfound families.”

Now that you have found one another, ALG is here to help you finalize your readoption here in the U.S.

A U.S. birth certificate is a precious thing. By readopting your international child in the United States, your child will receive a U.S. birth certificate with your name/s on it as parent/s.
In some cases, the readoption is also necessary for citizenship status.

FAQs

Do I have to readopt my internationally adopted child?

Maybe. Your agency should advise you on the immigration requirements for your child. Regardless of whether it’s required, you should re-adopt your child in the U.S. so they are eligible to receive a U.S. birth certificate.

What does the process include?

You will need to have all of your certified documents, including the immigration documentation, certified, translated copies of foreign adoption decrees, and the original birth certificate from the child’s country of origin ready to be filed with the court. You will also need a report from between one and four post-placement visits by your homestudy agency, depending on your child’s immigration status. We will prepare the Adoption Request and supporting documents, communicate with your agency, and accompany you to the finalization hearing.

How much does it cost?

We charge a flat fee of $750 for an international readoption.
