Adoption facilitators are a useful service and another avenue for birth parents and adoptive parents making adoption plans.

Most states allow facilitators, while others ban the use of facilitators. California is adoption friendly and a great state to finalize your adoption. Most states will allow the use of a facilitator to finalize in California or in your home state. If you live in New York or New Mexico there may be problems.

Adoption laws are constantly changing. Please check with an attorney or agency in your home state to ensure you can work with an adoption facilitator and are abiding by adoption laws.
