Mexico
Adoption
Advocate for Mexico
Overview
Mexico has a small adoption program, with a complicated procedure. For this reason, few adoption agencies work within Mexico.

Children Available: The children available for adoption are of Mexican heritage. Children 4 years and older are available, as well as younger children with special needs depending on the state from which you adopt. This adoption program is a wonderful opportunity for families wishing to adopt a child with minor special needs, or older children. Although younger children are sometimes available, families need to be open to a child 4 years and older, unless they are open to a child with special needs.

Parent Qualification: Adoptive applicants may be married couples or single women. The younger parent must not have an age difference of more than 50 years with the adopted child.

Timeline: 2 weeks to 2 months is the approximate waiting time to be matched with. Once the dossier is submitted in Mexican courts, it may take 6 – 8 months to complete the adoption process.

Travel: About 2 to 3 trips to Mexico are required by adoptive parents.
  • First trip ~ 6- 8 weeks duration
  • Second trip ~ 2- 4 weeks duration

  • Alternatively, you may choose to stay in Mexico for completing the whole adoption process, in which case it may turn out to be a single trip of 6 – 8 months.
