Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:
The process for international adoptions in El Salvador can be lengthy and complicated for prospective adoptive parents. The Salvadoran authorities responsible for administering adoptions are aware of the difficulties posed by the current process but disagree on whether current procedures should be amended. Some local officials are attempting to streamline the current adoption process, but others prefer to leave current practices unchanged. This causes the country's procedures to be applied inconsistently, and the experience of one adopting couple or parent may not be the same as that of any other couple or adopting single parent
The U.S. Embassy in San Salvador maintains a list of attorneys known to provide adoption services in El Salvador.
