Hello. I am going to be assisting you with your question today.
Please note: This is general information and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
So you are correct in that AZ Statute 8-123 states that any irregularities in the proceedings are deemed cured once a period of one year has passed. However, it seems the mother is not attacking the proceedings, but instead is stating that she was not in the right state of mind at the time to execute the adoption. This may not be a valid claim at this stage in the adoption.
I hope I have answered your questions. If I have not, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions you may have. Also, please do not forget to rate my response at your earliest convenience.
Unfortunately, you will still need to spend some money defending it. You will need to get an attorney for this. They may be able to file a Motion to Dismiss or Motion for Summary Judgment and dispose of the matter quickly.
