If you have ever filed bankruptcy does that mean you cant adopt?

Only asking because I was looking into an adoption agency and on their application they ask if you have filed bankruptcy before. We have so Im wondering if that will be an issue when we do decide to look into adoption..

  • It won't be an issue. They just want to know why and want to make sure you are financially stable now.

  • It won't make you ineligible to adopt. Like the first poster said, it is just to make sure that you are financially stable now.

  • It shouldn't make you ineligible to adopt in general. However, I believe an agency can deny you for any reason and a PBMom may not choose you if she knew that you filed bankruptcy. So you might hit a brick wall or two, but persistence should see you through! Good luck!
