How do R.O.C. citizen adoptive parents of foreign children file for termination of adoptive relationship?

(I) Application Process

1. The adoptive parents must apply through their district Civil Administration Office.
2. When the adoptive parents are unable to apply in person, they may appoint a representative by power of attorney (power of attorney established abroad must be notarized by a R.O.C. embassy/consulate/trade office); that person with power of attorney must be approved by jurisdictional Civil Administration Office.

(II) Required Documentation

1. Applicants identification and seal (or signature).
2. Legal documentation certifying termination of adoption which is recognized by R.O.C. and foreign laws. (Those filing abroad must have documentation notarized by the R.O.C. embassy/consulate/trade office.)
