When seeking full custody during an adoption process, it is important to know all of the facts. Adoption hearings are generally heard by the Circuit Court in your county of residence. Once the adoption is ready to be finalized, there will be a hearing in front of a judge, at which the prospective parents and child must be present. Here, the judge will present his final order, thereby finalizing the adoption.
