Gov. Snyder Signs Kurtz Adoption Bills
Wednesday May 07, 2014 12:59pm

By: Mike Stiles

(LANSING) – A package of bills signed by Governor Rick Snyder will help reform the state's adoption process.

House Bill 4648, sponsored by State Representative Ken Kurtz of Coldwater, will guarantee that a mother cannot lose custody of her child to the putative father during the adoption process.

There were two other bills in the package. House Bill 4646 will allow of the consent or release of an adoption to take place outside of the courtroom. House Bill 4647 reduces the length of the supervisory period for adoption of an infant from 6 months to 3 months.

Kurtz says the bills will give birth mothers and adoptive families in Michigan more options. By helping to place more children in loving homes in Michigan, Kurtz says we are creating a brighter future not only for these kids, but for the state as a whole.
