Travel and Time Frame
TravelAdopting from China Hong Kong is a one trip process about 7 days long. Children return to the USA with their families with a formal guardianship. After a period of 6 months, the family must finalize their adoption through their state court and pursue citizenship for their child.
Time FrameMost families will pursue a child from the waiting child list after their home study is completed and approved. Official referral of an identified child will take approximately 4-8 months after a valid dossier is submitted to the SWD (Social Welfare Department) in China Hong Kong.
Procedures to be granted guardianship and to leave the country with your child take roughly 4-9 months.
