How New Jersey Adoptions Work
New Jersey is a popular state for adoptions because its process is streamlined: Adoptions are made permanent without the delay of a waiting period. In other words, 72 hours after a child has been born, a birth mom can legally surrender her parental rights permanently. New Jersey also has an extremely open stance on adoption, welcoming all prospective parents, regardless of their sexual orientation or marital status.
At the same time, adoptions are still highly regulated and require extensive clearances, paperwork, and background checks. Our legal team can prepare you for every stage of the process to ensure the adoption goes as smoothly as possible.
