We work regularly with agencies throughout the world, in places such as India, China, England, and West Africa, and can adeptly handle adoption and surrogacy throughout the world.

The International Adoption Process

In order to adopt a child from another country, you must meet specific legal requirements. This includes the requirements of the U.S. government, the state government and the government of the country from which you wish to adopt. Additionally, if the other country is part of the Hague Convention, there are special procedures that will apply to your adoption.

A lawyer can help you untangle this complex web of domestic and international law. As an experienced immigration attorney, Keren Sohahong-Kombet has the knowledge, insight and skill to guide you through even the most complicated international adoption scenario. She will work diligently to ensure that the process moves forward as smoothly and efficiently as possible for you.

Resolving Disputes In International Surrogacy And Assisted Reproduction

Disputes over a contract can become deeply personal when they impact the future of your family. When a clinic or surrogate fails to live up to their agreement, it can be difficult to communicate your needs and enforce an agreement across borders.

If you are involved in this type of dispute, the first step is always negotiation. When negotiation fails, it may be necessary to bring litigation.

In your case, you may be able to choose the country where the case is handled or petition the court to have the case moved to another jurisdiction. Depending on the facts in your case, one jurisdiction may have laws that are more beneficial to you.

A lawyer can help you weigh your options and determine the proper venue for litigation. In particular, you want an attorney on your side who is experienced in international litigation and cross-border issues.
