I’m not exactly sure what the answer to your question is, but this website from the US Department of State has information about adoptions in Germany. 

Hopefully, this will help get you on the right road.

Good luck.

We lived in Switzerland when we adopted our 2 children, but most of the European countries have nearly identical processes.

The German Federal Department of Justice can provide you with your criminal clearances. It is virtually the same as an FBI check only for Europe (Interpol). If you aren’t sure how to do it or if you are struggling with translating the website from German into English, just check with the local Polizei and they can point you in the right direction.

Good luck!

Good luck!

I had lived in the Czech Republic for a year and needed a clearance from there.  It wasn’t easy but I finally got somewhere by contacting the Czech Embassy in Chicago.

my agency told me I did not need a clearing for Germany.  I pray that they are correct I really don’t want to have to get one if I don’t need to.  more paperwork you know what I mean.
