Legal Risks

In Arizona, an alleged birthfather (if known) is served with a notice of the adoption. He has 30 days from the date he was served to file a petition to establish paternity and serve the birth mother. According to ARS 8-106, if he does not file a petition to establish paternity and serves the birth mother, he waives his right to be further notified of any court proceedings. If this adoption finalizes in Arizona, his rights are terminated and no further action is necessary.  In most cases, these adoptions don’t finalize in Arizona as out of state residents are not able to finalize in AZ, therefore further procedures are necessary in order to provide the finalization state with a termination of parental rights order. After the 30 day notice, the Arizona attorney will check with the courts and perform a docket search to see if anyone has filed a paternity case. If no paternity case has been filed, he will get proof from the court. Once the child is born and the birth mother has relinquished her rights, he will present the court with the findings and the court will issue a termination order on the unnamed birthfather.

 

Arizona also has a registry statute. A putative father has 30 days to register. If he registers, he will get a notice that we tried to serve all possible fathers. He would then have to file a paternity case and give the birth mother notice. Thirty days after the child’s birth, we will check if any man has registered. If no man has registered, we will get a certificate that shows these findings. With the certificate we will then get an order from the court terminating parental rights of any putative father aka John Doe.

 

Finalization

If adoptive family resides in AZ the have the option to finalize their adoption in state. If the adoptive family resides outside of Arizona, the adopting family must finalize in their home state as the state of Arizona does not allow out of state residents to finalize in state. They will need to speak to their adoption attorney in their state to make sure AZ legal documents will be accepted.
