Legal Handbook for Overseas Adoptees

IAKL held two information sessions for overseas adoptees over the years, and published the Legal Handbook for Overseas Adoptees: Entry into Korea and Various Issues that Arise during the Visit or Stay in hard copies in July 2013. The Handbook deals with various legal difficulties that overseas adoptees experience when they return to Korea. It is prepared in both Korean and English so that anyone who needs help can easily look up, and also use it as a basic manual for counseling.

The Handbook was prepared over a long period of time in cooperation with three overseas adoptee organizations, Korean and overseas attorneys, and students from Ewha Womans University Law School.

WARNING: The information in the handbook is up to date as of July 2013. Please take note that the relevant laws may be amended at a later date.
