Adopt revocation declaration of the child

The consent of the child is required for acceptance. For a child who is incapacitated or not yet 14 years old, only his legal representative can give his consent. Moreover, the child can only give his or her own consent; this requires the consent of its legal representative. If the child has reached the age of 14 and is not incapacitated, he or she may revoke his or her consent until the statement of acceptance before the Family Court takes effect. The revocation requires public registration. The form is intended to ensure that the minor is informed of the legal effect by the notary or other document persons and that the revocation is not automatic. The revocation is permitted regardless of who has declared the required consent. The consent of the legal representative is not required. If the guardian or carer refuses to give consent or consent without good reason, the family court may replace them.

Consent must be declared to the guardianship court. The explanation must be notatted. Consent may be revoked until the statement of acceptance before the Family Court takes effect.
