General Information
Description of ServiceAdoption services are provided to all children under 18 years old who are legally free for adoption. Children become free for adoption when the natural parent's rights have been terminated. Termination of parental rights can occur when the parent willingly signs legal documents, before a judge, surrendering the child for adoption. Termination of parental rights also occurs when a child is adjudicated by a Family Court Judge as permanently neglected or abused. All "freed" children are under the guardianship of the Commissioner of Social Services.
