What is Hague adoption?

When a family wishes to adopt internationally, they must generally work through the Hague adoption process. Until relatively recently, families could adopt either through Hague adoption or the orphan adoption process. However, most orphan adoption required filing the appropriate forms to adopt before April 1, 2008. Hague adoption is a uniform adoption process that aims to ensure that the best interests of parents and children remain protected during the complex journey of international adoption. While not all countries participate in Hague adoption, most countries do.

In order for a family to internationally adopt a child through Hague adoption, the child must

  • Reside in a country participating in Hague adoption
  • Qualify for Hague adoption by their country of residence
  • Have all the necessary consent documents from their country of origin
  • Be under 16 years of age

If you hope to adopt a child internationally, you probably already know that this process takes a great deal of time in most cases, and is generally not a process to undertake casually. Many families wait months or years to finalize their international adoption, even when there are none of the usual complications during the process.

Your desire to give a good home to a child from another country deserves your full attention and commitment. Without a full understanding of the process and the potential setbacks you may encounter, you could waste valuable time and resources.

Be sure to use high-quality legal resources and guidance to keep your adoption on track. A strong legal strategy during the adoption process protects your rights and gives you the tools you need to give the child you love the best life that you can.
