If all is OK, the next step will be to find a home study agency, below is a very important explanation how to do it.
First of all, you need to find a Hague accredited agency. We work with partner Hague accredited agencies that are able to work in all 50 states, so you can contact us for details. If you have your own local Hague accredited agency, we can sign the contract or agreement with this agency.
Please, ask your agency to prepare the home study in accordance with Ukrainian laws, simply copy 2-3 pages from our website and send to the agency, ask them to do everything under our requirements. The pages are:
- Dossier guidelines
- Paperwork-list - home-study
- Paperwork-list - Notice-of-approval-i-171h
Access to section Dossier
Only our clients have access to Dossier section!
We can also give access to your social worker or she/he can contact us for details.
Your home study and I-171H form are ready and you can start preparing other documents. Please, note, it is better to do this when your home study and I-171 are ready, because the term of your documents should be valid at least 6 months on the submission day to the DFC (DFC).
So go to the section dossier and subsection paperwork list and prepare all other documents needed for the process.
Your dossier is ready and approved by us, now you can send it to Ukraine. Go to this page for further instructions and address
After you sent your dossier to us, please wire $1,000 for dossier translation, legalization and submission to the DFC. Go to this page for further instructions and explanation
We will translate and notarize your dossier. Then we will submit it to the DFC, please wait a confirmation about that.
In 30-40 days there will be a result from the DFC whether your dossier is approved or rejected. If it's approved then in 1-2 weeks we will receive an invitation letter for you to come to the appointment in Kiev. You may expect to come approximately in 1,5-2 months after your dossier was submitted.
