Hello, I’m Oklahoma fathers’ rights lawyer Jason Lile. As a father, it can be devastating to find out that your biological child is being put up for adoption without your consent. In Oklahoma, adoption without consent is a complex issue that requires the guidance of an experienced attorney in this area of law.
If your child is enrolled or eligible to be enrolled in a Native American tribe, the situation becomes even more complicated. The Indian Child Welfare Act outlines specific requirements for ensuring that tribal children are kept with their families whenever possible.
What Can You Do?
If you find yourself in this situation, it is vital to seek out an attorney who has experience defending parental rights in cases of adoption without consent. This is not an area of the law that you should try to navigate on your own.
The process of adoption without consent often involves two separate trials or hearings. The first hearing determines if the child is eligible to be adopted without your consent, while the second determines if adoption is in the child’s best interest.
