Accredited Adoption Service Providers
 
Updated August 5, 2014

A full list of accredited or approved adoption service providers in the United States is available here: http://adoption.state.gov/. Your chosen provider should also have or obtain accreditation from the Ministry of Welfare of the Republic of Latvia.

Note for the adoption service providers: You may seek accreditation with the Ministry of Welfare of the Republic of Latvia by submitting a request in the form of a letter with reference to the Article 12 of Hague Adoption Convention. The letter with any supporting documents should be sent by e-mail to the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Riga. The Consular Section, on its part, will then inform the ministry.  The Ministry of Welfare will notify the adoption service provider directly of its decision to approve or deny the request.

Adoption service providers in the United States already accredited by the Ministry of Welfare of the Republic of Latvia are listed below. This list also includes names and contact information for local adoption lawyers in Latvia associated with each service provider.  DISCLAIMER:  The below service providers are listed alphabetically. The embassy assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the individuals or adoption service providers listed herein. The embassy has neither the authority nor the resources to act as a bar association grievance committee. However, if you encounter unsatisfactory services from the individuals or adoption service providers listed below, please inform us and set forth the circumstances in writing to the Hague Complaint Registry.
