Interstate Adoptions

Interstate Adoptions Lawyer


Many people from other States come up to Alaska to adopt a child.  Perhaps they have made contact with a birth mother over the Internet and she has chosen them to adopt her child.  Lisa has assisted these parents in this process many times.  If the parents wish to go home before the child is adopted, we can help parents get through the Interstate Compact of the Placement of Children (ICPC) process.  If the parents wish to stay in Alaska for a few weeks, Lisa can finalize the adoption here in Alaska, and then parents can bring the child home without involving the ICPC.  These decisions and processes is where one needs an experience adoption attorney.  One does not want to run afoul of the ICPC process.
