Delaware law denies adult adoptees unrestricted access to their own original birth certificates. While adoptees 21 years of age or older may request their original birth certificates, birth parents may legally veto release of OBCs.
Minnesota law does not provide adult adoptees with unrestricted access to their original birth certificates. Access to OBCs in Minnesota is ridiculously complex and based primarily on the date of adoption and whether a birth parent objects to disclosure.
Currently, nearly all adult adoptees in Oklahoma must obtain a court order and show good cause for the release of an original birth certificate. An exception exists to this requirement for adoptions finalized after November 1, 1997.
