Adoption is International...

Most countries recognise each others Adoption Laws and Regulations. If an Adoption Order is granted by a Court, that Order is usually recognised throughout the world.

If you are uncertain or unclear about anything to do with the legal requirements of another country, please contact your own national body for clarification.

Many of the national or local regulations may differ, in some respect, to your own. However, the knowledge and expertise that is available is there for all. You should apply that experience to your own circumstances.

finding links

There are more resources available on the Internet than it is possible to list here. Any of the 'search engines', ie., databases, can find these links for you.

To search a database, place the word 'adoption' in the search criteria. This may well give you literally thousands of references. (You too can 'adopt' a rabbit!).

If you wish to limit the search, add additional words, such as 'child', 'children', 'adoption support' and so on. You will still get many references!
