The Center examines the adoption documents presented by the candidates, puts these candidates on a waiting list, gives them necessary information regarding the children available for adoption, including all information which would be necessary for adoption, and then gives detailed information regarding where the candidates should present themselves in order to meet with the children who can be adopted.

For the decision regarding the possibility of adoption of certain children by foreign citizens, written notice should be given to the appropriate department of education in the city where the child resides.

For the resolution of questions regarding the adoption of a child who is a citizen of Ukraine, foreign citizens should address the Center for all permits necessary to finalize the adoption.

At the time the foreign citizens seek to finalize their application for the adoption of a specific child, the Center examines all necessary materials and gives written permission for the processing of the adoption or, at that time, a written denial in detailed form.

Adoption of a citizen of Ukraine by foreign citizens is effected by the decision of the city (raiyon) court for granting adoption orders.

No payments are to be made by candidates for the adoption of a child except those related to covering incidental office expense. The receipt of any type of payment or favor for the granting of the adoption is forbidden. No person acting in an introductory or intermediary capacity is allowed to accept any kind of payment for having facilitated the adoption of a child.
