THE ADOPTION PROCESS

Understanding the Law

Disclaimer: This is a brief summary of the law as it would apply to a general adoption finalized in Michigan.  This is not meant to be legal advice or take the place of an actual consultation.

All adoptions that we do are finalized are started and finalized in Michigan, regardless of what state you live in. Thus Michigan laws apply and you do NOT need to hire a lawyer in your state for any part of this process. Upon signing a representation agreement, we immediately become your legal representatives.

Temporary Placement/Custody

In Michigan temporary placement is an agreed upon custody arrangement that is submitted to the court.  Usually this is done at the hospital, but it does not have to be.  Within 48 business hours of signing, this is filed with the Court. Temporary placement allows the potential adoptive parents to make medical, education and other decisions for the child.
