Adoption - Minor Petition

A birth certificate must be filed with the adoption petition.

If the child to be adopted was born after 1/1/1997 and the birth mother was not married to the birth father and
no subsequent paternity determination was made after the birth of the child, the Court requires a Putative
Father Registry Certification.

OHDS Form 1693 (Ohio Law and Adoption Materials) may need to be filed and is to be completed by the
adoption assessor and the birth parent(s).

If the minor was born outside the state of Ohio, you will need to provide the court with the address of the Vital
Statistics Dept. for the minor's birth state at the time of filing the petition
.
