For an adoption to be finalized there are typically 2 hearings. One at 3 month’s (a preliminary hearing) and one at 6 month’s. (finalization). We had to collect paperwork so our preliminary hearing happened to fall at our 6 month mark.
We have submitted financials 3 times. per the request of the court I have given receipts for credit card statements proving my adoption expenses but they still have an issue with the agency charges and want more info from the agency. At first this was going to hold us up from finalizing but once the judge found out that we can’t perform our religious ceremonies until we finalize and get a birth certificate he decided to sign off and let us finalize!!
