Form I-800A

In addition to the State Clearances required in the United States, there are additional clearances and documentation needed to adoption internationally from a Hague Convention Country.

Form I-800A

Once you have obtained a favorable home study, prospective adoptive parents must submit Form I-800A to USCIS in order to establish their eligibility and suitability. Home studies for Hague adoptions must be submitted to USCIS at the same time of filing your I-800A. If USCIS approves your Form I-800A, then you must submit Form I-800 to determine the child’s eligibility as a Convention Adoptee, before adopting or obtaining legal custody of the child.
