How to Make an Adoption Plan in New York
Placing your baby for adoption is a selfless act that requires great strength and love. You deserve support at all times during the adoption process. Our experienced adoption professionals are here to help you design an adoption plan that meets YOUR needs and makes you feel comfortable. We will guide you to through every step of the way.
- Choose a family for your baby: If you wish, you can view family photo albums of our families and decide which is the right family for your baby. Knowing that your child will be raised in a loving, safe, and stable home can give you peace of mind. If you would like, you can meet with your chosen family at any time during your pregnancy, or even after birth.
- Decide on an open or closed adoption: New York laws allow adoption agencies to offer open, semi-open, or closed adoption plans. At Adoptions With Love, our adoption plans have flexibility and you can make changes at any point. If you choose a closed adoption, you can open it later at any time. All of our adoptions include letters and pictures for you on a yearly basis. It is your choice to receive them. We can help guide you through this process to determine which type of adoption plan will best suit your needs.
- Receive counseling and guidance: Our network of highly qualified counselors is available at all times, to give confidential and free counseling. We help to make this adoption process as comfortable as possible. Once the adoption is final, we continue to check in with you and offer our services, free of charge.
Adoption Laws in New York
At Adoptions With Love, we understand that adoption may present you with life-changing decisions. It is normal to feel confused and overwhelmed. That is why we are here to help you navigate the process.
Each state in the U.S. has its own set of laws and regulations regarding adoption. According to New York State law, the birth parent(s), adoptive parents, and adoption agency cannot share the same lawyer. Adoptions With Love has licensed social workers and attorneys throughout the State of New York who are available to share advice on the legal components of adoption – all at NO COST TO YOU. We provide ongoing support and counseling to educate and comfort you during your adoption.
In New York, you can only sign adoption documents after your child is born. This ensures you have enough time to think about your decision, spend time with your baby (if you would like), and ensure you are comfortable moving forward with adoption. Adoption is a lifelong decision.
Birth fathers who are married to the birth mothers must also consent to adoption. However, birth fathers who are not active participants in the situation, not mentioned on the birth certificate, and who do not have contact with the birth mother, may not need to sign the adoption forms. Adoptions With Love can help you understand more about birth father rights, and also help you approach any difficult situations involving the biological father.
Our attorneys are well-educated in New York adoption laws and are prepared to handle and inform you of all legal related information regarding your baby, from signing documents and choosing an open/closed adoption. It is our job to make this process as comfortable as possible for you.
