Relinquishment for Adoption Assistance and Support

Programs that provide information, assistance and support for birth parents who wish to voluntarily terminate their parental rights to a child and provide consent for adoption. The program may offer assistance with the legal process and paperwork, the selection of the adoptive parent(s) for the child, paternity and fathers' rights and other similar issues as well as relinquishment counseling or other forms of support which address the emotional side of the process (including feelings of fear, grief, loss and sadness) during the relinquishment process and following relinquishment, as needed. In many cases, parental rights are transferred to an adoption agency rather than directly to new adoptive parents so that the agency can maintain the level of confidentiality and privacy that the parties desire and have agreed to in the adoption. The agency passes the parental rights to the adopting parents. Laws governing consent and relinquishment vary by jurisdiction. In some areas, relinquishment is a judicial process, taking place in court; in others, papers can be signed in front of agency representatives, a notary, or other designated person. Other differences include whether relinquishment terminates parental rights or is just part of the process, whether relinquishment papers can be signed prior to the birth of the child or within a specified time following birth, the conditions under which relinquishment can be revoked, and the conditions under which a pending adoption may be interrupted beyond the time allowed for revocation. The term "relinquishment" also applies to the document that birth parents sign as part of the relinquishment process.
