We recently just started the re-adoption process for Maya and Keira here in Indiana. This is required in most states for any foreign adoption your child travels back to the US on an IR-4 visa. With our first adoption we paid a lawyer $500 to do it. This time after learning about the process we decided to do it ourselves and save the money. It's actually an easy process that will only take 2-3 hours of your time between filling out the paperwork and going to government center. Since a lot of people have contacted us about this here are the details on how the process works.
You will need these forms (note these are all specific to Indiana):
As of October 2009 this is the current contact for questions or issues related to re-adopting in the state of Indiana:
What To Do
Directions on filling out the forms and what to do with them are below. This is text copied directly from an email I received from Denise:
Please print the medical history PDF file and complete it and then make a copy. You may not know any of the child’s history so just leave it blank, but please sign the form and date it. Bring both the original and copy to court.
When you come to court, please come to room 1721 on the 17th floor of the City-CountyBuilding. You will have to go through security so please refrain from bring anything into the building that you would normally not be taking into an airport. Ask the bailiff to see a commissioner for domesticating a foreign adoption.
