Interstate Adoption Lawyer

Knowledge of Interstate Adoption Requirements

The Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) governs cases in which a child is born or lives in one state and the adoptive parents live in another. Anytime a child is moved from one state to another through adoption, ICPC requirements must be met.
