Changes to the California I.C.P.C. make it
easier for California Residents
Effective January 1, 2005
LIMITS PLACED ON THE INTERSTATE COMPACT (ICPC)
THE ICPC NO LONGER APPLIES WHEN A BIRTH MOTHER WHO RESIDES OUTSIDE OF CA BUT DELIVERS HER CHILD IN CA, PLACING THE CHILD WITH A CA RESIDENT FOR THE PURPOSES OF ADOPTION.
Section 7907.5 is added to California Family Code to read:
7907.5. (a) A child who is born in this state and placed for
adoption in this state with a resident of this state is not subject
to the provisions of the Interstate Compact on the Placement
THIS NEW LAW ALLOWS THE ADOPTION PROCESS
TO PROCEED IN A MORE EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT MANNER.
