Domestication of Foreign-Granted Adoption ("Re-adoption")

Sherry Virginia Neal

Practice Area:Adoption

Outcome:Adoption granted

Description:The B-H family worked with a private agency to bring their precious daughter home from Ethiopia with all of her adoption work in that country completed, but they needed to domesticate the adoption and obtain a Georgia-issued birth certificate for her. To help them accomplish their goals, I represented them in a domestication action based on the Ethiopian paperwork and helped obtain the birth certificate.
