How To Apostille Child Abuse Clearances for Adoption Purposes 

Child abuse clearances are required for each state (and foreign country) that each of the adoptive parent(s) have resided in since their 18th birthday. 

So, please tell your social worker all of these states (and foreign countries) that you’ve resided in. 

The social worker will run those clearances for you. 

Ask your social worker to scan us the results of each state (or foreign country). 

We will use this information to issue a document that will disclose the findings of each clearance that your social worker obtained. 

You don’t need to do anything else but simply make sure that your social worker will email us the results of the above described clearances.

Please put it on your “to-do” list to email your social worker and remind her to email us those clearances.  Please feel free to cc us on this email. 

No Notary.  No Apostille.
