Open Records Adoption

An open records adoption provides a legal avenue for an adult, who was adopted as a child, to review all records pertaining to his adoption. Typically, the right is granted through a court order. Once the order is given, the adopted person has access to all records pertaining to his adoption to do with as he wishes. Open records adoptions have caused many debates surrounding the rights of the adopted child compared to the rights to privacy by the birth family.
