OCI adopting from India while living in India?


I am wondering if its possible for an OCI (US citizen) to adopt from India, while being based on India? I know the process for adopting while being based in the US. If anyone has experience with adopting while living in India, please post? Would the OCI use - "in-country" adoption or "inter-country" adoption? How would we bring our child back to the US if we wanted? etc.

The main difference will be the child's visa/citizenship opportunities. If you adopt via the domestic process, you will need to live with your child in India for 3 years before you can bring them to the USA. But if you adopt via the international process, they will become citizens upon landing on US territory. I have a friend who considered adopting via the domestic process (because it was perceived initially to be faster) and he realized that his daughter would not be able to come to live with him in the USA for 3 years. That was a big reason to use the international process. It still took him quite a while to get through the court system but was worth it of course in the end.

Hi Max's mom - did your friend do the international adoption while living in the US or while living in India? Was this after Hague or before Hague? And if they did it while living in India, how did they do the Home Study in India?

Thanks in advance!

You should check out the Yahoo group for Americans Adopting Abroad - there is probably someone on there who knows!
