How to correctly and quickly adopt a child if the father is a foreigner?

Adoption of a child when the father is a citizen of a foreign country requires special attention to the documentary and legal components of the process.

The first important step is to consult with an experienced lawyer who has an understanding of both Ukrainian and home country legislation.
