Adoption Law: At the Hospital

An adoption attorney explains the legal steps surrounding your child’s birth when you adopt domestically.

  • Notifying the hospital of the birthmother's adoption plan
  • Filing for a birth certificate and receiving your child's medical records
  • The birthmother's consent to adoption
  • Taking custody of your baby at discharge
