Our Adoption Process

2007-May 2011

Waiting times from LID to Referrals increase dramatically. New Hague Treaty Laws “Grandfather” our I-600A forms for a limited time until we are required to file an I800A form with USCIS, and continue to seek approval to bring “an orphan into the United States”.

May 2012

We update our HomeStudy one last time and now are required to apply to USCIS under a new form called the I-800A form

( the old I600A form is no longer valid under the new Hague Treaty Regulations ). 

May 21, 2012
