Updating Your Dossier

Bulgarian International Adoption

How To Update My Dossier? 


For the DOSSIER UPDATE you will need the following:


  1.  Consideration List (linked) – please fill out a new one. No notary/apostille is required, just the original document, signed.
  2. Declaration Annual Confirmation (linked) – no notary/apostille is required, just the original document, signed.
  3. Instruction on How to Fill out the Declaration Annual Confirmation.
  4. Apostilled Home Study Update.
  5. Apostilled CIS Approval.

You will need to send the above documents directly to FNA at the following address:

Family National Association
4 Vitosha Blvd., floor 5
1000 Sofia, Bulgaria

tel.+359 2 980 30 83

When mailing things to FNA, please use UPS or FedEx.  When asked the value of the package, I would calculate the value of the paper the documents are printed on, and conclude that it is less than $3.  If you indicate that is $40 or more, it may get held up at customs which will add a pretty significant delay to your process.  Additionally, Bulgarian customs may charge a fee to allow the documents to be released to FNA.

As with all other documents, everything with the dossier is in 2 sets.  The originals go to FNA (as said above) and the “Second Set” comes to our office.  Please send the “Second Set” to us at:


10801 Johnston Road, Suite 201

Charlotte NC 28134


Also please scan us the CIS approval before mailing it.


Please let me know if you have any questions.


It is a pleasure serving you.


Today's Verse:  -Joshua 1:9-

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go
