Adoption Laws in the United States
Pregnancy Calendar (Week by Week)
A 5-year waiting period to finalize has been a strong deterrent for foreign residents wishing to adopt a Greek child. Children of other heritages are available for adoption. Greek children may be adopted only by Greek nationals or those of Greek origin and residents in Greece, unless special needs. Children available range from infant to older children. In 2008, U.S. citizens adopted no children from Greece.
Visit the Adoption Directory for Greece Adoption Agencies and other professionals and services.
Travel required: If married, at least one parent must travel and that parent must be U.S. citizen.
Convention Country?: No
Singles accepted: Yes, must be U.S. citizen.
Other: International Social Services (ISS) in Athens must perform the homestudy, and an in-country attorney must be used. Preference given to those of the Greek Orthodox faith.
