Name-Based International Adoptions       

International adoption cases are for adoptions that are not processed through DHS, and are processed through an agency dealing with a child from anther nation. These are often processed by attorneys or private adoption agencies, but can also be submitted by individuals.


We are currently trying to update our forms for these requests. In order to ensure you have the latest copy, please request a private adoption packet from our offices. The packet can be emailed, faxed or mailed to you.

What you need:

  • Background Request form; and
  • $20 processing fee, which can be a check or money order made out to the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.


The completed form, two cards and processing fee can be sent in to our offices at:
