Adoption laws by state

The above is a chart that describes some adoption laws by state. It answers questions such as:  When after birth can consent be given? When does consent become irrevocable? If the consent is revoked, is return to birthparent automatic? What birthparent expenses may be paid, and in what time period? Can adopters advertise for birthparents? Can out-of-state residents finalize an adoption? It is dated 2004, so some of it may be outdated, but it might offer a good place to start this sort of research.
