CA adoption law and procedure, international adoption procedures

We adopt a child in the Philippines and he is 5 months now. We got him since he was born on April. What is the procedure and what document do I need?

  1. Adoption is not do it yourself any more. You really do need a lawyer. An appropriate procedure for the Courts of your State to recognize the foreign adoption may be a bit complicated, so obtain a referral from your local bar association's office or from the State Bar office in Sacramento
