Family Adoption in Utah


I just needed a little information. My wife and I are going to be adopting our niece's baby. Currently we live in California, and our niece lives in Utah. Looking at the information on the website, it seems that adoption in Utah is fairly straightforward. The parents just need to sign the relinquishment document before a judge 24 hours after the baby's birth, and that's it. I was wondering if anyone knew if it was more involved than that.

Thanks for any help.

As far as I know that is about how it is. We adopted our little angel here in Utah. She was born here and the bmother signed and that was that. Finalization was a breeze also. Good Luck to you.

I think since you are family that you won't have to get approval with the interstate compact office in your state, but I would check to be sure. good luck with the new arrival!

Thank you very much for your information. It has been very helpful. As a follow up question, can anyone tell me what kinds of documentation I would need to bring when we go before the judge? Also, are there any fees involved? Since we're travelling from California to Utah, we want to make sure we're well-prepared and not missing anything vital that we may need.

Thanks again.
