What are North Carolina laws concerning adoption?

I am considering adopting a child but do not understand the laws in my state concerning interstate adoptions.

Children are adopted everyday across state lines and international borders. If you adopt, an attorney will be involved to make sure that everything is done properly.

Any adoptioins that you do will be through an adoption agency. This is required by law and they will help you with interstate adoptions.

For a start i would try contacting your North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. They can very probably help you out and point you in the direction of a good adoption service.

Adoptive and birth parents will now be able to maintain contact with each other if both parties agree to do so before the adoption is finalized.
