What Are The Requirements For An Adoption In Mississippi?
In order to be able to adopt another individual, a person must be over the age of 21 and have the written consent of the parents or guardian of the person being adopted. If consent is not obtained, a court process will have to occur to attempt to eliminate the parental rights of the unwilling party. Under current Mississippi law, same-sex couples may not adopt. If the individual being adopted is over a certain age, that person must also consent.
