I am looking into ''re-adoption'' of a
child that we adopted in Dec 2006
from Russia. I have checked with
several attorneys in the matter &
found that they charge a range of
$800-1500 for this service.
I also recognize that the state's
charge is only $250 for this
registration. Is it possible to submit
an application for order
recognizing validity of foreign decree
of adoption by representing
one's self, or do you have to hire an
attorney? Any information in
this matter is much appreciated!

You don't have to hire an attorney if you know how to do it. Just like you don't have to hire a mechanic if you know how to work on your car. But, what you're asking for is more difficult than an oil change.
