Adopting a Child in Virginia

In Virginia, adoptive parents must be at least 18 years of age. There are no requirements when it comes to marriage or being in a relationship, which means that anyone, including widows, singles, divorcees, and same-sex couples can adopt a child. That said, there are still some requirements all prospective adoptive parents must meet.

For example, being convicted of the following offenses will result in your inability to adopt a child in Virginia:

  • Manslaughter or murder
  • Robbery
  • Arson
  • Abduction
  • Physical or sexual assault
  • Crimes that involve children
  • Substance abuse
  • Use of a weapon in a violent crime
  • Violating a protective order
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Extortion
  • Stalking
  • Carjacking

Adoptive parents must also attend orientation and about 4 to 6 training sessions. The training sessions are led by foster parents and adoption social workers. Additionally, other specialists, such as therapists, psychologists, and physical health clinicians will be present to offer future adoptive parents advice and information on a variety of topics.

Lastly, one of the most essential steps in adopting a child is completing a home study, which will involve documentation, an in-home visit, and a home inspection. Let our adoption team assist you, so you can smoothly navigate the process.
