Adoptee & Biological Parent Forms

Effective July 1, 2019, Section 44-63-140 of the South Carolina Code was amended to allow adult adoptees, age 18 or older, who were born in South Carolina, to obtain a copy of the adoptee’s original birth certificate, and any evidence of the adoption held with the original birth record, if the biological parent has completed the necessary forms consenting to the release of the certificate.  A biological parent may also indicate their contact preference and consent to release medical history information. 
This law applies to adoptions finalized after July 1, 2019.
