Check suitability as adoptive parents for domestic adoption


You apply to an adoption agency for an adoption. This can either be your youth welfare office or a recognized non-governmental adoption agency.
This is followed by a suitability test. For this purpose, the specialists of the adoption agency will talk to you to find out more about you.

This procedure can take several months. Only after a positive suitability test by the youth welfare office is an adoption possible.

However, this is no guarantee that an adoption placement will actually take place.
