Does a termination of parental expire if adoption was rejected?

Q: My mother began an adoption process to adopt my nephew in 2016 the biological father signed a termination of parental rights. My moms attorney filed the paperwork and ended up getting very ill. The adoption was rejected because of missing paper work. I know we now have to resubmit all the paperwork like finger prints and home study but will we need to get the termination of parental right signed all over again? Or would it still be valid? Biological Father is no where to be found.

A: If by "termination of parental rights" you mean a "surrender" signed in the context of the pending adoption case, then I'd advise to have it done over again. It's at least possible the Court will not honor it if you file a new case (you could always try, though). Schedule a consult with a Bronx Adoption attorney for a full assessment.
