The 2010 Earthquake
In wake of the 2010 earthquake that devastated the Port-au-Prince area, many American families have explored the option of adopting orphaned Haitian children. The application process following the earthquake has been changing, so families looking to adopt should research before they proceed.
Information About Haiti Adoptions
- Prospective adoptive parents from the U.S. may have to appear before a Haitian justice of the peace to proceed with the adoption process.
- A prospective adoptive parent of a Haitian child must be at least 35 years old. However, if one prospective adoptive parent is over age 35 and one is under age 35, they can proceed with the adoption process provided they have been married for 10 or more years and have no biological children of their own.
Haiti has particular adoption requirements that can be confusing. Contact Fort Lauderdale adoption attorney Rebekah Brown-Wiseman to find out more about Haitian adoption rules and regulations. For more information, visit international adoptions.
