Q. How do I unseal an adoption record? I am an adult.


Domestic Relations Law Sec 114 (3) states when an adoption record may be unsealed. Good cause may be medical necessity or other reason as determined by Court. There are no DIY forms for this proceeding. Sample pleadings and interpretative cases can be found in the code annotations in McKinney's and New York Consolidated Laws available in Public Access Law Libraries.
