If you work with an Indiana-based adoption law firm like Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), whether you live in Indiana or outside of Indiana, you can take advantage of Indiana law which provides expectant mothers options for fathers who will not talk to them. One such option is “Pre-birth Notice.” Simply stated, if an adoption attorney or adoption agency can arrange for notice of the adoption to be placed in the birth father’s hands prior to the birth of the baby and the father does not respond to the notice within 30 days of his receipt of it, the father’s consent to the adoption and further notice of the adoption are not needed. Very importantly, this can take place BEFORE the baby’s birth, does NOT require him to sign ANYTHING, and does not require the birth mother to put up her baby for adoption, or, more correctly, make an adoption plan if he does not respond. The “Pre-birth Notice” Statute has proven to be a useful tool in dealing with uncooperative alleged fathers. By the way, the statute does NOT require knowing for sure that the man to whom the notice is given really is the father. Therefore, if more than one man could be the father of the baby, the notice can be given to each of the possible fathers.
If you would like more information about Pre-birth Notice, your other options regarding the father of the baby, or would like to explore adoption, we, at Kirsh & Kirsh — or the “Kirsh Boys,” as the adoption attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh are sometimes called – Steve, and his brothers, Joel and Rob, and his son, Grant, pride themselves on answering questions about adoption and explaining the process without pressure or judgment.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER: Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans. Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption.” If we do not include those words in our blog posts and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby,” then our website will not show up in most expectant moms’ search results in Google.
