Attorneys in Interstate Adoptions

If a child is being placed across state lines, then another attorney will be necessary.  All fifty states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children.  Among the requirements of that law is a provision which makes it a crime to place a child across state lines for the purpose of adoption unless both states have given their prior approval.  This approval is obtained by filing substantial documentation with the Interstate Compact offices in both states.  In order to accomplish this, the adoptive parents will usually need competent adoption counsel in both states.
