A Unique And Informed Approach To Handling International Adoptions

Adopting a child from a foreign country can be an incredibly complex, costly and stressful process — it can also be one of the most rewarding and enriching things you ever do. We have worked with hundreds of families in dozens of countries around the world to bring their children home. We routinely handle Requests for Evidence (RFEs), Notices of Intent to Deny (NOIDs), Notices of Intent to Revoke (NOIRs), and Appeals of Denials and Revocations (I-290Bs).

At Dempsey Law, our goals define our practice: we advocate for the best interests of children from around the world and help families grow and succeed through adoption. Having successfully completed numerous international and domestic adoptions, we understand the obstacles facing clients and appreciate the myriad investments they make. That is why we invest ourselves — both professionally and personally — in helping our clients navigate the international adoption process.

It's A Complicated Process, but We Have The Means To See You Through

There's plenty to consider when adopting a child from a foreign country, including state, federal and international adoption and immigration laws. Navigating these regulations and processes on your own can be overwhelming, frustrating and time consuming; our attorneys and staff will provide you with the support and resources to complete your adoption as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Although each adoption presents its own unique challenges, there are primary considerations we will outline during our initial meeting, including:

  • Guidance in choosing an accredited adoption service provider
  • Identifying countries that are signatories to the Hague Convention
  • Education regarding state, federal and international adoption laws
  • Education regarding state, federal and international immigration laws
  • Representation throughout the immigration and citizenship process

While there are plenty of firms out there handling adoptions, few, if any, offer the same level of service we provide at Dempsey Law. For years, our founder and lead attorney, Kelly Dempsey, has helped couples in North Carolina and across the country achieve their dreams of building a family through adoption. Her accomplishments as both a practicing lawyer and an advocate for improving adoption laws have established her both internationally and domestically as a leading voice in conversations surrounding interborder adoptions.
