Adoption Forms:

  • NOTE: The "Consent to Adoption" forms on this website are NOT designed for cases involving Indian children subject to the Indian Child Welfare Act. Get advice from a lawyer on how the Indian Child Welfare Act might impact your case.
  • The Father's Adoption Registry at the MN Dept. of Health is a record of "putative" fathers (men who think they may have fathered a child) who register voluntarily any time before their child's birth or within 30 days after the birth.
