What is the adoption process like for married couples?

The process varies depending on the style of adoption you choose to pursue. An experienced adoption attorney will be able to clearly outline the process and help you decide which method is best for you.

What if I am adopting a child from another country?

International adoptions are considerably more complicated. Not only will you be required to abide by the country of origin’s regulations concerning the child, but you will also be compelled to meet all of New Jersey’s adoption laws as well. Because this will take more time and money than a domestic adoption, it is best to work with an experienced adoption attorney.

Are there limits on how much adoptive parents can spend during the process?

Yes, the amount of money adoptive parents can give to birth parents is strictly regulated. Payments may not be made toward birth-parent expenses past the fourth week after the baby’s birth.
