Do I need the birth father’s permission to place the baby for adoption?

If the birth father has not been involved with you or your pregnancy, has not expressed a desire to raise or support the baby and you are not legally married to him, an adoption can occur without his consent. However, it is generally in everyone’s best interest if the birth father is involved as early in the process as possible. Your baby deserves complete and accurate medical information and a legally sound adoption. Open Arms Adoptions’ staff can assist in speaking to the birth father and collecting the necessary information from him.
