The new adoption law was passed by the Chamber of Deputies on Thursday, August 29th. It has now passed both houses in its current form. We do not know when the new law will be implemented, but there is speculation that that could occur in October or November.
I have attached a version of the new law here, and a rough translation of the adoptive parent criteria is on our blog, here.
Please note that the new law clearly designates international adoptions to be plenary, as is required by the Hague Convention.
Good news for many!!
