State law sets requirements for adoptive parents. In Tennessee a potential adoptive parent can be married, single, divorced, any race and religious affiliation as long as he or she meets the statutory requirements for adoption. In Mississippi, what is considered to be the best interests of the child is the determinant in granting any adoption.


Adoption may take from a few months to a few years. It can be complex and time-consuming. An attorney familiar with the important details of adoption laws and regulations can make the journey for the adoptive parent(s) easier and less stressful.
