California Adoption Advantage

Posted on: May 12th 2011

California is one of a few states which allow out-of-state parents to finalize their adoptions in California. The virtue of this is that California allows for birth mother expenses, does not place categorical limits on who can adopt, and adopting parents don’t have to appear in person to finalize the adoption; the attorney can appear on the adopting parents’ behalf. Nevada law is also changing in this respect and will likely go into effect on July 1, 2011.
