The child in the house is happiness. He makes our life more meaningful and bright. If you do not have your baby, you can adopt it. Undoubtedly, this is a rather complicated process. It will take time, effort and some legal knowledge to collect and execute the necessary documents.
What you need to adopt a child: a list of documents
In order to adopt a baby, you need to collect a certain set of documents. The main minimum includes:
- Autobiographies of future adopters;
- Certificate from their place of work with indication of positions and salary or copies of income declarations (valid for one year from the date of issue);
- Copies of the financial and personal accounts and extracts from the house (apartment) books from the place of residence or documents confirming the ownership of the dwelling (valid for one year from the date of issue);
- A certificate from the Department of Internal Affairs that the adoptive parents do not have a conviction for an intentional crime against the life or health of citizens (valid for one year from the date of extradition);
- Medical reports of state or municipal medical institutions on the health status of adoptive parents (valid for 3 months);
- A copy of the marriage certificate (if the adopter is in it).
How to adopt a maternity hospital?
It is much more difficult to get a baby from a maternity hospital than from a shelter or baby house. The fact is that there are much more spouses who wish to adopt a newborn in Russia than there are those who are ready to take in their older children. These adoptive parents guardianship and the courts are treated with special attention.
The main requirement for the adoption procedure is that the age difference between the prospective parent and the child must be at least 16 years old. The statement about the desire to become an adoptive parent must be notarized. In addition to meeting the above requirements, you must also undergo a full medical examination for the presence of mental disorders, skin and venereal diseases, cancer, and CNS disorders.
The guardianship and trusteeship bodies will also study in detail the living conditions that the adoptive parents are ready to provide to their unborn child. After that, they will conclude within 15 business days whether you can become adoptive parents. Based on this document, you will be registered as "candidates for adoptive parents."
But this is not all: the next important step lies ahead - a three-month “course for young parents,” which will be conducted by experienced employees of the guardianship and trusteeship bodies and psychologists. While you are studying, you can apply to the court, along with a statement of claim to establish the adoption.
Sometimes, to overcome the resistance and misunderstanding of others, women have to go to some kind of deception and imitate their pregnancy. This is possible only if adoption is planned. If you take a child under the age of 1, you can get official permission to change his date of birth in the certificate, which can be useful if you hide the true origin of the baby from relatives.
Features of the process of adoption
Some of the guardianship agencies and charitable organizations today post on the Internet brief information and photos of children from baby houses. This is done so that orphans have as many potential adoptive parents as possible.
