TO AMEND THE LAWS APPLICABLE TO ADOPTIONS, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE NORTH CAROLINA BAR ASSOCIATION.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to 1st edition.
Deletes amendments to GS 48-2-607(c), which required that an action brought to set aside certain adoptions be brought within one year. Makes an organizational change to GS 48-3-608(b), which concerns revocation of consent in direct placement circumstances. Repeals GS 48-2-302(a) (previous edition amended the statute), which specifies the filing deadline for certain adoption petitions. Amends GS 48-2-401(a), clarifying that the petitioner must initiate service of notice (rather than serve notice) of a filed petition for adoption on specified persons no later than 30 days after the petition is filed (previous edition deleted the 30 day time period).
