Agency adoptions occur when a child who is to be adopted has been received
by the adopting parents from an adoption agency that has been approved
by the state. There are many adoption agencies, and Pine & Steinberg,
LLC can help you determine which agency is right for you. The prospective
parents must meet with a caseworker from the agency and have a pre-placement
report, or home study, performed. The parents must provide social history,
medical history, financial status, and other important information. Once
the parents are approved, the agency can match a child with them.
Private placement adoption is when the child to be adopted is placed with
the adopting parents privately by the biological parents without the assistance
of an agency. The prospective adoptive parents must still retain an agency
and meet with a caseworker from the agency to have a home study performed.
The adoptive parents must provide social history, medical history, financial
status, and other information.
International Adoptions & Re-Adoptions
Many parents who adopt a child outside of the United States want to adopt
or re-adopt in the United States. Re-Adoption in the United States allows
an adoptive parent to obtain a United States birth certificate and a United
States Judgment of Adoption. In some countries, the child is placed in
the adoptive parent's care and the adoption is finalized in the United States.
