Reminder of the Importance of Post-Adoption Reporting



Have you filed a post-adoption report recently? The Office of Children’s Issues (at The U. S. Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs) reminds adoptive parents and adoption service providers (ASPs) how important it is to comply with the country of origin’s requirements for submitting post-adoption reports.

Compliance with a country of origin’s post-adoption reporting requirements not only demonstrates U.S. families’ commitment to their children’s welfare, but also helps encourage countries of origin to continue placing children with U.S. families.

Please fulfill your post-adoption report commitments:

1) Check the requirements for the country you adopted from;
2) Submit any outstanding reports by July 1, 2018 or as soon as possible;
3) Make a plan for submitting future post-adoption reports by required deadlines.

Specific requirements for post-adoption reports vary from country to country, can be detailed, and may continue until an adopted child turns 18. See the Bureau’s Post-Adoption Reporting Overview for more information.
