A New Adoption Law for Haiti

On November 15th, 2013, Le Moniteur noted the publication of the New Adoption Law for Haiti.  We hope to have a complete text copy of the new law within a week or two.  We will update our new law translation as needed to reflect any changes.

It is the opinion of many adoption professionals who have reviewed the law that the Department of State is highly likely to evaluate Haiti's new adoption law and procedures as Hague compliant.  

This new law has been a long time coming, but we believe it is a huge step forward in the protection of the rights of all three members of the adoption triad.  Our thanks and praise to all of those who worked so hard to bring change and progress to Haitian adoptions!
