Adoption laws differ from state to state. These laws govern everything from the adoption process to placement practices to search and reunion. It’s important that hopeful adoptive parents, parents who are expecting a baby and considering placing him or her for adoption, and people searching for birth family members become familiar with these laws. If you have a question about the laws in your state, contact an attorney familiar with adoption law in your area.
