Domestication Of Foreign Decrees Of Adoption

If you have chosen to adopt a child from a foreign country, you should have the foreign adoption decree domesticated once you return to the United States. Sherriann has handled hundreds of cases in which she has helped adoptive parents domesticate their foreign decrees of adoption or re-adopt children in the county of their residence.

Once you domesticate the foreign decree of adoption, you will have a Georgia decree of adoption and a birth certificate written in the English language from Georgia Vital Records. This will help when it is time to enroll the child in school and extracurricular activities, as well as when it comes time to obtain a driver’s license. In addition, the domestication will ensure that the adoptive child will be entitled to survivor’s benefits from Social Security in this country.

Sherriann has helped numerous families domesticate foreign decrees of adoption in the United States. She understands that often families have spent thousands of dollars traveling to other countries to adopt a child and do not want to spend thousands of dollars to domesticate the adoption. Because she understands the process, she is able to handle these cases quickly and efficiently. As a result, her fees are very reasonable.
