Legal Authority/Introduction

LEGAL AUTHORITY:

An adopted person and/or a sibling with a prior relationship may request to re-establish contact with each other.  An adopted person or sibling age eighteen (18) or older may file information about himself, present address, desire to be reunited and a statement authorizing the Cabinet to release the information to his sibling if he/she makes a similar inquiry.

Practice Guidance

  • If a mutual request for contact from the siblings is contained in the record and a pre-adoptive relationship is confirmed by the central office Adoption Services Branch, the siblings may immediately be put in contact with each other.
  • If no mutual request is contained in the record, the information provided by the sibling is filed in the record. If the request becomes mutual, the siblings may immediately be put in contact with each other without a court order.
