Accessing Adoption Records


Access Adoption Records

Accessing adoption records inside the United States can seem like a daunting task.  Here at Adopted for Good, we strive to serve our adoptees with the best and most useful resources for them to use.  We provided a copy from the Child Welfare Information Gateway explaining information regarding obtaining adoption records.  

The PDF has the following information:

1. Nonidentifying Information vs Identifying Information

2. Restrictions on Release of Nonidentifying Information

3. Mutual Consent Registries

4. Other Methods of Obtaining Consent

5. Original Birth Certificate

6. What Information Can Be Located

7. Accessing Records By State
