Attorney Dan Berger will be a panelist on “Citizenship and other International Aspects of Foster Care/Foster to Adopt” at the 2018 Silent Victims: Foster Care and Foster Care Adoption in America Conference at Duke Law School on November 16, 2018.
This panel will consider the transnational consequences of the placement and care of U.S. foster children. International adopted children who come into U.S. foster care may lack U.S. citizenship or be ineligible for citizenship under current U.S. law. Similarly, state child welfare agencies that would like to place foster children for adoption into international homes face regulatory and administrative hurdles because of the conflict between U.S. domestic foster care rules and international adoption rules.
