Find Info on Ohio Adoption Records at OBG

Over the last several months, we’ve been working with our friends at Adoption Network Cleveland to develop some awesome infographics that clearly explain what Ohio adoption records law looks like now that Senate Bill 23 has passed. The Birthparent Decision Tree helps Ohio birthparents understand their options for sharing certain information with the children they placed for adoption. The Adoptee To-Do Chart outlines the actions that adult adoptees can take to find their birth and adoption information. Download these helpful guides and learn more about Ohio’s adoption records law on our NEW LAW Info Page.
