If I Put My Baby Up for Adoption, Do I Have to Go to Court?

IF I GIVE MY BABY UP FOR ADOPTION, DO I HAVE TO GO TO COURT?

Generally, no, you do not have to go the court, especially if you choose to work with Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”). Even if you do not live in Indiana and you select prospective adoptive parents, who live in Indiana, represented by Kirsh & Kirsh, we can file the adoption in Indiana. Indiana Law does not require birth parents to travel to court and stand in front of the judge. Indiana gives a birth parent the option of confirming their consent to adoption by telephone with the judge. Other states may have this requirement. In fact, in states that require a court appearance, sometimes the court hearing may not take place for days or even weeks after you give birth to the child. There are several reasons to ask Kirsh & Kirsh, rather than a national adoption agency or local adoption agency, to assist you in finding an adoptive home for your newborn or older child. This is just one of those benefits.

If you would like more information about adoption and available living expenses during and after your pregnancy, we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh — or the “Kirsh Boys,” as the adoption attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh are sometimes called – would be happy to help. Steve, and his brothers, Joel and Rob, and his son, Grant, pride themselves on answering questions about adoption and explaining the process without pressure or judgment.

At Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, the four adoption attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh have over 100 years of combined legal experience arranging adoptions. Kirsh & Kirsh has been in existence since 1981. We know Indiana Adoption Law inside and out. We can find a wonderful home for your baby regardless of your social and medical history. Please be honest with us and do not worry that no one will want your baby. There is always a family waiting to love your child. We have many wonderful, carefully screened, loving families, FROM INDIANA AND ALL OVER THE COUNTRY (married, single, Lesbian, and Gay) who cannot wait to welcome a baby into their hearts and homes and are happy to assist with living expenses to the fullest extent allowed by law. You make all the choices about which family adopts your baby and the extent of contacts you want after the child’s birth.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER: Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans. Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”. If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant mom’s search results in Google.
