Interstate Infant Adoption

This is a required legal process if you’re seeking to adopt a child who is currently not living in the same state as you. It is known as ICPC and must be completed before you can return home with the child.


Taking the first step in adopting, surrogacy, or ART can seem intimidating. We’re here to support you every step of the way.

What Makes Interstate Adoption Special? 

Interstate adoption occurs when you’re adopting a child from another state. These steps will require additional paperwork and are intended to ensure that children are safe in their adoptive placements.

While this process can be more complicated than adopting a child locally, interstate adoptions happen all the time.
