Adoption Law/Revocation

ATTENTION
This page does not provide legal services or advice. Adoption law and revocation is listed as a courtesy. The page attempts to link to the latest adoption codes in the respective state. Laws can change. Verify your adoption laws and revocation timeframes before signing termination of your parental rights.

A consent to the adoption of a minor who is to be placed for adoption may be executed by the birth mother 48 hours after the minor’s birth or the day the birth mother is notified in writing, either on her patient chart or in release paperwork, that she is fit to be released from the licensed hospital or birth center, whichever is earlier.

The consent is valid upon execution and may be withdrawn only if the court finds that it was obtained by fraud or duress.
