If I had a conviction in the state of North Carolina

Customer Question

If I had a conviction in the state of North Carolina for crimes against nature 35 yrs. ago, will that stop me from adopting a child in the state of VA since I have lived here for 25+ with no other convictions?

HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard. It is a felony. And the adoption agency will be able to see the charge, and conviction if they go back far enough. So yes, if it is discovered it can hinder an adoption process.

NC requires a full federal background check for perspective adoptions.
