Private Adoptions & ICPC

Private Adoptions & ICPC Assistance

Private adoption is an attractive option for many parents because it allows parents to have more control over the process. However, working without an agency doesn't mean you have to go at it alone. Because private adoption is a complex process, if you are planning to adopt a child it is important that you work with an attorney to keep that process moving forward.

Dealing with ICPC Adoptions

Private adoptions are governed by strict rules and deadlines. Failing to satisfy these regulations could jeopardize your adoption, either by delaying the process or disqualifying you entirely. We can help you avoid these pitfalls, allowing you to move forward with confidence. However, Arizona residents do not need to confine themselves to our own state when searching for a child to adopt.

Here’s what you need to know about the process:

  • Interstate adoptions are governed by special rules. These rules are laid down in the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC), a national agreement that controls the movement of children between states.
  • When a person adopts a child across state lines, the adoption must first be cleared through the ICPC office. This can be a daunting task. Many parents prefer to hire an attorney to ensure that their adoption stays on schedule.
