Ohio's Adoption Laws Have Changed
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND INVOLVEMENT!
WE DID IT!
Ohio's adoption laws changed on December 19, 2013 when Governor John Kasich signed Substitute Senate Bill 23 into law. The purpose for Adoption Equity Ohio was to be the central source of information during the legislative process and during the implementation period. The AEO website will remain for historical purposes, but will not be updated. However, there is still plenty of support out there for you. For information on Ohio's changing law and other adoption topics go to Adoption Network Cleveland's website (ANC)

2013 Adoption Network Cleveland took leadership in gaining the right for all Ohio adoptees to
have access to their original birth records. The new law gives
400,000 adult adoptees adopted between 1964 and 1996 access to their
original birth certificates.

March 19, 2015 as part of “Opening Day” – when 1964-1996 Ohio adoptees
can first apply for their vital statistics records.
