Supportive Birth Fathers and/or Married Couples Choosing Adoption
If you are a married couple, in a relationship, or no longer together, but the child’s father is supportive of your adoption plan, the adoption can continue without any additional requirements. Together, the two of you can choose an adoptive family for your child and determine what level of contact you would like to maintain with your child and his or her adoptive family.
Once the child is born, both you and the birth father will sign consent paperwork that will allow the adoption to take place. According to Arizona adoption law, these consents cannot be signed until 72 hours after the birth.
