Anchorage Adoption Lawyers

Alaska Adoption Laws & Requirements

Adoption occurs when a child legally and permanently joins a family. In Alaska, children who are at least 10 years of age must consent to the adoption.

  • To be eligible to adopt in this state, a prospective parent can either be single, married, or in a committed relationship, and must pass a criminal background check. Eligibility is based on a person’s ability to successfully parent a child, rather than their income, marital status, age, race/ethnicity, or lifestyle.
  • Adoptions involving children with Native American heritage may be subject to the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). Adoptions involving more than one state adhere to the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC).
  • Finalization after placement consists of several post-placement visits. After these visits have been completed, the adoption finalization hearing will be held in a local courthouse.
