Re: Recision time limit

Georgia law provides as folows: "Although consent to adoption may not be withdrawn as a matter of right after ten days, passage of statutory ten-day period does not preclude revocation prior to final adoption for good and sufficient cause. Code, 74-403(a); O.C.G.A. 19-8-3(a), 19-8-4(b)."
