Relinquishment is the legal process involving paperwork by which a parent gives up their legal rights to a child, consents to the adoption of the child by another individual or couple, and places the child with the adoptive parents. It’s important that the parent do so voluntarily and is not forced or compelled to place for adoption. Adoption Life takes care to assure that a relinquishment is done ethically and in accordance with state laws.
There are various stages and a significant amount of paperwork associated with placing a baby for adoption. We’ll work with you to complete the paperwork as it is needed. You will not sign any paperwork related to relinquishment until after your child is born, and you are recovered from the delivery. Most states have a mandatory time frame from 24-72 hours after the birth of a child before parents can sign relinquishment paperwork. We’ll work with you to sign the required paperwork at a time and place that you are comfortable with, and with the supportive people you want to have around you.
