Anyone know TPR time period in Iowa?

Hi! We are considering a situation where the baby will be born in the state of Iowa. Just wondering if any of you might know how long the TPR period is in that state. Thanks for your replies.

I think that a parent cannot sign before 72 hours and then has 96 hours to change her mind. But I would check with my agency/attorney to verify.

ICPC will also depend on how on the ball the adoption agency is. We are from another state our facilitator compiled an ICPC packet for us to take with us. When we tried to give the packet to the IOWA adoption agency that the bmom was using they said, "we don't need that we have everything we need." Well 17 days later our facilitator in GA hand delivered a packet to GA ICPC since the IOWA agency did not send everything they needed.

Hopefully the agency you are working with will be on the ball and know what they are doing when it comes to the paperwork required for your state.

I wouldn't rely on the agency...I recommend calling the ICPC in both states and finding out what they require and making sure I have the packets ready to go. GA has the longest most complicated ICPC packet out there I think (25 documents from the parents alone I think). I wasn't taking a chance that I would be stuck in another state and need something back home!!

The ICPC packet for GA was insane..... so glad our facilitator was so organized. I am not sure what all went into the ICPC for Iowa, I just know our time could have been cut in half or even more if the agency in Iowa had their ducks in a row.

Don't forget that 72 hours may be the minimum amouth of time she would have to wait, she isn't required to sign in that amount of time. I only say that because I hate to see someone think that ohh in three days she has to sign, when it really isn't that way and I don't think agencies always do a good job of communicating that.
