USCIS has issued a new interim memorandum pertaining to the requirements for domestic adoptions of children from Hague Adoption Convention Countries.
This memorandum greatly changes the protocol of local adoption courts or attorney to request a determination from the Central Authorities of children’s countries of origin to issue determinations of the children's’ habitual residency.
If you would like to hear about the changes in more detail I will be hosting a webinar on Monday April 7, 2014 that discusses these topics in depth and will be followed by a Q&A session. Contact Thanos Caras (tcaras@steffaslaw) to reserve a spot. Registration on or before March 31st $75, Registration after March 31st $100
