4) Overview of the Adoption Process

*Note*: This is accurate only as far as our experience went - as NRIs resident in Singapore and adopting from Mumbai. I have heard that there are significant differences for NRIs residing in the US and countries which take the Hague Convention very seriously. Specifically, as per Article 29 of the convention, I understand you are forbidden to approach RIPAs directly but must go through your agency in the US. Do perform due diligence, checking with official sources, before you proceed with any step on your adoption journey.
