Adoption and Surrogacy Contracts
A person seeking to adopt a minor shall utilize an agency or attorney to arrange the adoption. Only an attorney or agency may arrange an adoption. An attorney may not represent both the person seeking to adopt and the parent placing a child for adoption. An assessor must conduct a home study for the purpose of ascertaining whether a person seeking to adopt a minor is suitable to adopt. A written report of the home study is filed with the court at least ten days before the petition for adoption is heard.
