The State or County agency, which provides child welfare services, or a licensed child-placing agency, can assist birth parents planning to place their child out-of-state, and provide services to Nevada families planning to adopt children from another state. Arrangements to place children across state lines must follow the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) regulations, and a State/County worker or private agency social worker must be involved to help with this procedure. Placement laws may differ from state to state, birth parents, prospective adoptive parents, and attorneys handling interstate adoptions are encouraged to contact a State/County or private agency as soon as possible regarding the home study and placement requirements. Compact requirements should be discussed early in the adoption plan so that the placement is not delayed. Nevada’s ICPC Deputy Compact Administrator can be reached at (775) 684-4418.
