Clarksville International Adoption Lawyer

There are many regulations at the state, national and international levels that govern international adoptions. If you are looking to expand your family through international adoption, the assistance of an experienced adoption lawyer is essential to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.

Most children who are adopted from abroad are first adopted within their own countries and then "re-adopted" once the family has returned to the United States. If you have adopted a child overseas, attorney Steven C. Girsky can help you navigate the state-side adoption process. The Law Office of Steven C. Girsky helps prospective parents in Tennessee and Kentucky with all state-side adoption requirements involved in international adoptions.

Most international adoptions are accomplished through the use of approved international adoption agencies, which must be licensed through the U.S. Department of State. Either the agency or the parents, or both, complete the adoption within the child's home country first. Parents must obtain a special immigration visa for their child in order to bring him or her back to the United States. To finalize the adoption, parents then "re-adopt" the child according to their own state adoption laws.

As your Clarksville international adoption attorney, Steven Girsky will explain the entire statutory process to you in detail, both before the international adoption takes place and following your child's return to the U.S. He can then help you with all the documentation necessary to complete the re-adoption process within your own state.

Attorney Girsky knows that each adoption case is highly unique. Some adoptions happen quickly, while others take more time to ensure all loose ends are tied up. He will help you understand the timeline involved so you can have a realistic expectation about how long it will take to finalize your child's American-based adoption.
