Mississippi Adoptions Made Easy

Our legislature has recently simplified the process for uncontested adoptions in which one, or both, of the parents can voluntarily relinquish their parental rights by executing an affidavit that conforms to the following requirements:

  • It must be signed under oath
  • Dated at least 72 hours after the child’s birth
  • State the parent’s full name, relationship to the child, and address for service of process
  • State the child’s full name, date, time, and place of birth
  • Identify any agency or home to which the child has been surrendered
  • State the parent’s consent to adoption and waiver of service of process in future adoption proceedings
  • Acknowledge that the termination and adoption of the child may eliminate the parent’s right to inherit from the child
  • Acknowledge that all provisions of the release were entered knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily
  • Acknowledge that the parent is entitled to consult an attorney

What this means for Mississippi parents is that your adoption can be streamlined so long as the parents or parent consent to the adoption — they don’t even have to come to court, or be served with process, so long as they execute an affidavit that conforms to the statute. Adoptions are, after all, procedural matters. That is why it is so important to have an experienced Mississippi adoption lawyer that has the knowledge and background to complete the process, start to finish, without any setbacks.
