I already have been in contact with a birth mother regarding a potential adoption in Arizona, but does the birth father also have rights?
Arizona has a "putative father registry" for birth fathers. This allows a birth father to register his claim of paternity and receive notification of adoption proceedings while protecting the security of the adoption. A birth father who registers before the birth or within the 30 days after the birth has the right to be notified of any adoption-related judicial hearing.
If you are seeking adoption in Arizona and have questions about how the birth father may affect your case, contact a Maricopa family law attorney with Curry, Pearson & Wooten today at 1-888-929-5292.
