ADOPTION LAW NJ – ACCESSING ADOPTION RECORDS FROM THE STATE OF NJ

By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. a New Jersey Adoption Lawyer

By law, the State of New Jersey must make information about the child you are seeking to adopt available to you.   This includes information about the child’s health, date of birth, age, and information about the birth parents.  These records are typically sealed in most other states, but the State of New Jersey is one of three states that provide it to adoptive parents only.
Recent changes in New Jersey law have allowed adopted children to access their original birth certificates so that they may know who their biological parents are.  This legislative change has been considered to be controversial amongst many people across the state.  If you are an adopted child, then this will potentially allow you to reunite with your biological parents.
The adoption registry is the location where information about adopted children is housed.  This is also at the state of New Jersey Department of Children and Families.  The department of children and families will assist you in finding your child’s adoption records.  NJ adoption law is often a challenging and difficult subject to sort through, so accessing adoption records is necessary in cases where you want to learn more information.
