Legal Risk Adoptive Placements

In legal risk adoptive placements, the rights of all of the child’s birth parents have not yet been voluntarily or involuntarily terminated.

This type of placement is made preliminarily to an adoption where the prospective adoptive parents acknowledge, in writing, that a child can be ordered returned to the sending state or the birth mother's state of residence (if different from the sending state), and a final decree of adoption shall not be entered in any jurisdiction until all required consents or a termination of parental rights are obtained or dispensed with in accordance with applicable law.
