Access to OBC/Adoption Records by State


THIS PAGE IS CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED - Please bear with us until it is complete.

The mission of the Adoptee Rights Coalition is to work towards restoring unconditional records access for all American adoptees. To that end, we have compiled the following list of state specific links and information with respect to current state laws and state based groups working to change the laws (if necessary).

Should you have a link you wish added, please contact us at arc@adopteerightscoaliton.com and we would be happy to add it.

The Adoptee Rights Coalition would like to urge you to get active in your home state. Please support the legislative groups actively working in your area to restore access to original birth certificates.
