Orlando Interstate vs. Intrastate Adoption Attorney
An Intrastate Adoption takes place when the Birth Mother, the Child and the Adoptive parents all live in the same state. In an Interstate Adoption the Birth Mother and Child are not within the same state. There are many commonalities between the two Adoptions such as the importance of conducting a home study. However, having all of the parties to the Adoption in close proximity within the same state is not the only advantage to an Intrastate Adoption. When adopting a child that was born and therefore, resides in the same state as the Adoptive parents you may take physical custody of the child and bring welcome them into your home. Contrary to Intrastate Adoptions, Interstate Adoptions do not allow the opportunity for Adoptive parents to welcome their new family member into their home due to strict Interstate Compact laws which do not allow children to be transported across state lines.
