Copies of Documents (Confidentiality)

Due to the strict laws regarding the confidentiality of adoption files, individuals who have been adopted are not permitted to see their adoption records without an order of the court.  Further, if the court grants an adopted person the right to inspect or have copies of his/her adoption record, court staff are only permitted to provide documents for inspection or for copying to the adopting parent(s) and their attorney of record, unless the name of the child's birth parents or any other information tending to identify the child's birth parents is deleted from the documents or copies.
