We don’t handle many adoptions and we aren’t able to find a lot of guidance under PA laws on what we should file in the event of a private, agency or foster care placement.
Currently we just have a release that states the mother is placing her child w x ( the adoptive parents or agency). When the parent makes the decision at birth to turn the child over to an agency or CYS what do you require to be on file before that child is released out of the hospital? Are you requiring a court order or temporary guardianship paper work?
Thx for your help.
