Birth Mother Changes Her Mind

How long after the birth mother consents does she have to change her mind in the State of Florida?

Experienced Florida Adoption Attorney

Under Florida law, birth mothers cannot consent to the adoption of a newborn until 48 hours after the child is born or on the day she is discharged from the hospital. Once the birth mother signs the consent, it is binding and effective immediately. The birth mother can only withdraw the consent if she can prove in court that it was obtained by fraud or duress. If the child is over six months then there is a three day waiting period but no such waiting period exists for newborns.

Mary K. Wimsett is an experienced and compassionate Florida adoption lawyer, mother, and wife who has helped hundreds families through the adoption process.
