I am uncertain as to the specific laws in Oklahoma, but it is possible to reverse an adoption. Depending on the state you live in, the petition may be filed by the adoptee or the biological or adoptive parents. However, it is a lengthy and expensive process. You will have to check with the courts in your location for information on whether or not it is even possible to reverse adoption in your home state. Furthermore, you will almost certainly need a lawyer.

You must convince the court that you have a compelling reason for your request to reverse the adoption and, even then, the court may deny your request. It is the court's duty to decide whether or not the reversal would be in your best interest and, even if you disagree, they may decide that your adoption is in your best interest.

If your were adopted through foster care, then your birth parent's rights have been terminated; if you manage to reverse the adoption in that case you'll go back into foster care, and will almost certainly not go back with your birth parents.

Once an adoption is final in Michigan, a judge will rarely overturn or reverse it. There has to be a very compelling reason for the change such as unfitness of the adopting parents or the lack of notice to one or both of the birth parents.

Adoption records or private attorney.

You have asked two different questions. First, you probably can not reverse an adoption. Second, it is easy to change your name. It is a simple legal procedure. You do not need to reverse an adoption to do it. You fill out the forms, petition the court, and the judge signs the petition. You have changed your name back to your birth name.

it all depends on what kind of adoption it was.. open adoption means that birth parents have a right to search for their kids and kids have a right to search for their parents. but if its a closed or private adoption it means that some one (birth parents or adopted parents) don't want the child to find their birth parents... for that you would have to speak to a social worker or some one who is involved in the legal custody and adopted children...

you cant reverse an adoption, whens the babys been handed away, its most likely you wont see them again, the adoption agency isn't allowed to give you the babys new address or new name, its all legal, even if your the birth mother:(x

An adoption is where a child is "adopted" by another couple who is not their birth parents. This gives a child a nice home and a good future...

That would all depend upon what state you are in, what are the circumstances surrounding the adoption. Has the parental rights of natural parents been terminated? In Oklahoma if the child is under the age of 18, a natural parent has to be notified of adoption proceedings.

Any parent looking to adopt should check with their city/state about kids up for adoption. Contact a local adoption agency to find out who is up for adoption. Make sure you know if you want to have an open or closed adoption (open is the birth parents can contact the child closed is they can not) and be prepared for adoption to be set up and then fall though (the birth mother/father stop the adoption process).

In an open adoption the birth parent(s) are allowed to visit and contact the child. The child may not know them as mom or dad but rather as aunt uncle or cousin. In a closed adoption the birth parents have no contact with the child what so ever. Also, in a closed adoption, the adoptive parents have the right not to tell the child they are adopted if that makes life easier. I was adopted in a closed adoption.

It's the adoption process in which both the birth parent(s) and the adoptive parents are made known to each other.

No. Birth and Adoption certificate are different

A married couple or an unmarried adult are generally eligible to adopt a child in the United States. Stepparents can also be granted the right to adopt a birth child or children of a spouse. Specific laws might vary slightly in each state, so a person seeking to adopt should review the law in his or her state before beginning the process. Additionally, an adoption can be handled through an adoption agency or independently without agency involvement. The desired contact between the birth parent(s) and adoptive parent(s) determines if the adoption is closed or open.In a closed adoption, most adoptive parents do not know the birth parents or where the child was born. The files in the case are physically sealed and the child will not know the identity of his or her birth parents. Open adoptions are the opposite, where the adoptive and birth parents meet and maintain some degree of contact. An open adoption gives most birth parents a voice in selecting the adoptive parents for a child.The Adoption ProcessProspective parents are required to participate in a home study process before an adoption is granted. There are three primary purposes to this process. The adoptive family receives information to educate and prepare them for the adoption. The social worker can use this time to gather specific information about the prospective parents to help in making the best match. The social worker can also determine the emotional, behavioral and financial fitness of the parents to care for a child.Some prospective parents experience anxiety during this process, fearing they will not be approved. However, agencies are not looking for perfect parents, but rather are looking for parents who are capable of accepting the realities of parenting.Once the home process is completed successfully and a child is located, the adoptive parents will petition the court for approval. This may require an adoption hearing before the adoption is finalized. The birth parents have already relinquished parental rights and duties for the child.A consent notice is sent to the birth parents, the adoption agency and the legal representative for the child prior to the hearing date. The judge will issue an order that approves and finalizes the adoption. This order legalizes the adoption, granting a new parent-child relationship between the adoptive parents and the child. An official name change for the child by the new parents can also be requested.

Children can be relinquished for adoption at any age, and even adults can be adopted, although that usually has little to do with parental surrender. In the case of pre-birth matching of adoptive parents and a woman making an adoption plan, the time between birth and legal termination of rights (TPR) for birth parents varies from state to state. A lot of babies are placed for adoption when they are newborns, right at the hospital. Most states have a period of time (for instance, 48 hours) after the birth of the baby in which the birth mother has to wait before she can sign the relinquishment papers. The adoptive parents can then leave the hospital with the baby.

While only an adoptive parent, and not an attorney or any legal representative- Rescinding an adoption is not easy in Illinois, practically impossible, and even harder since "Baby Richard" and the laws that were enacted because of that case. Birth parents must either sign papers in court in front of a judge to terminate their parental rights, or be proven unfit, before the adoption can even proceed. Once the adoption is final, court documents are impounded, birth certificates are changed, social security records are changed. While birth and adoptive parents can pursue whatever informal or documented "open" adoption procedures they choose, those procedures are not binding upon the adoptive parents. Once the adoption is final, the adoptive parents in Illinois are under no obligation to allow the birth parents or the birth families to have any contact with the adopted children whatsoever if they choose. Illinois is a closed adoption state. And that adoption is locked tighter than a safe! There have to be extremely good reasons to release the records from impound, and there have to be even better ones to pursue rescinding the adoption. Your best bet, as is the best bet of anybody pursuing adoption, is to find the best attorneys you can afford, pay the retainer, and see if you have a case to rescind the adoption. If the attorney you choose finds you do not, perhaps there are other ways to achieve what you want to achieve legally: A name change, having birth parents adopt an adult, etc.

A parent or parents who will love, protect and nurture the child(ren), who has been prepared, trained approved and licensed by the appropriate people.A child who is (children who are) available for adoption, who's birth parents no longer have their parental rights.

Unless you have a open adoption you are not supposed to. At 18 you can try to find them or they can try to find you. if you have a open adoption you need to speak to your parents how much contact they allow. It's all up to them as long as you are a minor.

The birth and adoption of Moses is narrated in Exodus 2.

A closed adoption is legal. The birth parents choose a couple and give the child to them without meeting them. There is no contact between the birthparents and child. All the child knows is health records of the parents and ethnicity and things like that.

A baby cannot be placed in an adoption without the consent of both parents - tis is something you and she (the mother) need to work out.

If you are adopted, you can try to find your birth family by asking your adoptive parents what they know of your adoption and by trying at access your original birth certificate. If you are not adopted, you already know your birth family.

It is possible to "reverse" the adoption if the child's mother is ready to assume custody and responsibility. You will need to engage legal counsel. It is not clear why you want to apply for a birth certificate and medical attention if you are no longer the boy's guardians. Discuss these matters with the attorney as well.

This is a vital question. In New Zealand for example, two people merging their families, by formal adoption after their new marriage, may no longer be able to request the birth certificates of the children, because the new parents are not the birth parents! (After adoption.)This could affect the children's ability to claim citizenship via a parental trail.In the case known, the new partners knew of this klutz, and obtained the childrens birth certificates before the new marriage, and the subsequent adoptions proceeded OK.So get the birth certificate before adoption.
