Consent of the father to the adoption of a child

What deadlines must be paid attention to?

The father who is not married to the mother can only have a waiver of the transfer of custody notarized after the birth of the child.
In contrast, the father who is not married to the mother and does not have custody rights can have his consent to the adoption notarized before the birth of the child. Otherwise, the mother and father - separately or jointly - can give notarized consent to the adoption of their child no earlier than eight weeks after the birth.

How long does it take to process

The necessary legal instructions and questions that you may wish to clarify before notarization require a time commitment that differs in each individual case. In addition, there may be a waiting period on site.
