USCIS Provides Contact Information for Adoption Cases

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) provides contact information for Hague and non-Hague adoption cases. Also, this contact information includes dedicated e-mail addresses for these types of cases.

What is the Hague Adoption Convention?

The Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Inter-country Adoption (Hague Convention) is international treaty. Further, the treaty provides important safeguards to protect the best interests of children, birth parents, and adoptive parents involved in inter-country adoptions.

The U.S. entered into this treaty on April 1, 2008. Therefore, all cases filed on or after 4/1/08 seeking to adopt a child who resides in a country outside the U.S. that is a party to the treaty, must follow the Hague process.
