New Law Will Make it Easier to Obtain Adoption Records

May 1, 2015

Starting on March 20, 2015, anyone adopted in Ohio between January 1, 1964 and September 18, 1996 can simply pay a fee of $20.00 and fill out a request form from the Ohio Office of Vital Statistics to receive a copy of their original birth certificate and the certificate of adoption. The new law, Senate Bill 23, unseals the records and will allow almost 400,000 people who were previously denied access to Ohio’s birth records.

Link for the request form: www.odh.ohio.gov/vs

However, please note that anyone adopted after 1996 cannot access the records if the birth parents requested their file to be sealed.
