TO: ANY AND ALL JOHN DOE (S), (A FICTITIOUS NAME)
Pursuant to A.R.S. §8-106(G), notice is given to ANY AND ALL JOHN DOE(S), (A FICTITIOUS NAME), that you have been identified by Sara Elizabeth Ingram, residing in Mesa, Arizona, as the potential father of Baby Girl Ingram, (a/k/a Not Named Ingram), born on October 9, 2020.
You, ANY AND ALL JOHN DOE(S), (A FICTITIOUS NAME), have been named the potential biological father of this child. You are informed of the following:
The natural mother, Sara Elizabeth Ingram, is planning to place her child for adoption through Adoption Choices of Arizona.
Under Arizona law, A.R.S. §8-106 and A.R.S. §8-107 you have the right, if you are the biological father of this child, to consent or withhold your consent to the proposed adoption.
Your written consent to the adoption is irrevocable once you sign it.
You have the right to seek custody of the child.
In the event that you wish to assert parental rights to the child described above, and/or if you wish to withhold your consent to the proposed adoption plan, your obligations are as follows:
If paternity has not been established, you must initiate a paternity action
pursuant to title 25, chapter 6, article 1, and serve upon the mother the paternity action within thirty (30) days of completion of service of this Notice.
You have the obligation to proceed to judgment in the paternity action.
Once paternity is established, you must begin providing financial support for the child, and if paternity is not established until after the child is born, you may be responsible for past support. [A.R.S. §25-809(A)]
If you do not file a paternity action and do not serve upon the mother your paternity action within thirty (30) days after completion of service of this Notice and proceed to judgment in the paternity action, you are barred from bringing or maintaining any action to assert any interest in the child.
Because the mother and child are residents of the State of Arizona, any paternity action is required to be filed with the Arizona Superior Court.
The Indian Child Welfare Act may supersede the Arizona Revised Statutes regarding this adoption and paternity, if applicable to this adoption.
For purposes of service of a paternity action, service may be made on the mother by serving Adoption Choices of Arizona, c/o Philip (Jay) McCarthy, Jr., Esq., McCarthyWeston, PLLC, 508 North Humphreys Street, Flagstaff, Arizona 86001.
