Post Adoption Services

Since the beginning of the twentieth century, Child and Family Services of Michigan, Inc., State Office has been the repository for individual records that document adoptions performed by member agencies. In accordance with the Michigan Adoption Code, State Office staff responds to requests for identifying and non-identifying information from adult adoptees and former family members. The release of identifying information is determined by the date parental rights were terminated as well as the presence of a statement of consent or denial in the Central Adoption Registry, court, or agency file. Non-identifying information may be released regardless of whether a consent or denial is on file. To date we have facilitated over 40,000 adoptions and, in the past several years, thousands of individuals have received adoption record information from our office. To encourage a better understanding of post-adoption issues, State Office staff provides general adoption information to other Michigan adoption agencies, researchers and the media. Referral to counseling services for adoptees, adoptive parents and former family members experiencing search and reunion issues is also available. For more information, please complete the form below.
