Helping You With An International Adoption
If you are considering adopting a child internationally, the steps you must complete are country-specific and complex. It is essential to work with an attorney who has in-depth knowledge of all specific laws that apply to your case. Among many considerations, the counsel you choose may prove critical to your adopted child’s ability to gain legal immigration status and the benefits of a green card or U.S. citizenship.
Experienced Guidance For People Focused On Adopting Internationally
At Grob & Eirich, LLC, we have helped individuals and families in Denver and across Colorado and the U.S. complete many intercountry adoptions. Our experience and diligent efforts cover a broad spectrum of international adoption challenges and issues such as:
- Adoptions from some of the approximately 100 countries that have joined the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption (see adoption.state.gov) — including the first-ever Colorado outgoing case involving a U.S. child and adoptive family living in England;
- Adoptions from non-Hague Convention countries pursuant to applicable Colorado or other state laws;
- Conversion of guardianships of foreign-born children to legally sound adoptions once in the United States; and
- Filings for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS petitions) for children now in the U.S. who were victimized by abuse, neglect or abandonment by one or both biological parents and whose best interests would not be served by return to their countries of origin.
Due to our years of experience, we frequently offer recommendations of countries to consider and referrals to qualified international adoption agencies. Our lawyers are adept at reviewing agency contracts, validating foreign adoption documents, and taking all other steps necessary to pursue your family-building goals while protecting your interests and those of the child.
” We live in England and used [Grob & Eirich, LLC] to adopt a little girl in Colorado in 2012. Seth [Grob] always delivered exactly what he said he would in a timely manner without fail. In addition, it felt like a very smooth journey as a customer. He communicated with us clearly without the use of jargon, dealing with all the legal issues which arose in a professional and courteous manner. We always felt that Seth was acting in our best interests.” Christine and Jan
