Tennessee Adoption Information

There are two main legal steps in any adoption, both of which should be overseen with the help of your adoption attorney.

  • Terminating the parental rights in the birth parents
  • Establishing parental rights in the new parent or parents

An adoption may take anywhere from a few weeks to a few years, depending upon the specific circumstances. There are also several options as to how you can adopt:

  • Domestic adoption: adoptions in the United States
  • International adoption: adoptions from other countries, such as Korea, China, India, and more
  • Related person adoption: adoptions from a relative of the potential adoptive parent
