Mutual Access to Identifying Information Citation: Ann. Code § 78-30-18
The adult adopted person and birth parents, upon presentation of positive identification, may request identifying information from the adoption registry maintained by the bureau. The bureau may only release identifying information when it receives requests from both the adopted person and the birth parent. After matching the request of an adult adopted person with that of at least one birth parent, the bureau shall notify both the adopted person and the birth parent that the requests have been matched, and disclose the identifying information to those parties. However, if the adopted adult has a sibling of the same birth parent who is under age 21, and who was raised in the same family setting as the adult adopted person, the bureau shall not disclose the requested identifying information to that adult adopted person or the birth parent. The adult adopted person and adult siblings, upon presentation of positive identification, may request identifying information from the registry, following the same procedure outlined above. Information registered with the bureau is available only to a registered adult adopted person, and his or her registered birth parent or registered adult sibling. Information regarding a birth parent who has not registered a request with the bureau may not be disclosed.
