Temporary Placement Prior to Adoption PDF Print E-mail
The parent may place an adoptee in the care of a prospective adoptive parent prior to formal placement through a temporary placement. This permits an infant to be placed directly from the hospital with a prospective adoptive parent.

With written authorization of the parent, a child placing agency may make a temporary placement of a child.

A temporary placement must meet all of the following requirements:
  • The prospective adoptive parent must be a Michigan resident.
  • In a direct placement, the paremtn must be assisted by a child placing agency or an attorney. 
  • A written statement about the transfer of physical custody of the adoptee must be signed and witnessed by all parties. 
  • The attorney or child placing agency that assists must submit a report to the court within two (2) working days of the transfer of physical custody. 

The court has the authority to resolve any custody disputes that arise between temporary placement and formal placement.
