Indiana Adoption Laws
Adoptions in Indiana are governed by Indiana Code 31-19 et seq. Each adoption case may have different requirements for consents and notice to biological parents and other family members, to name a few. Adoption is a highly complicated area of the law and, because the stakes are so high, you should not attempt to handle an adoption on your own. Hiring an attorney will be your best bet for understanding the process and your legal requirements as an adoptive parent in Indiana.
