Adult Adoption FAQs

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

Q:
Are adoptions of adults done in the Waukesha County Juvenile Court?

No. Adult adoptions, adoptions of anyone 18 years of age or older, are done in the Waukesha County Probate Court. Contact their office at 262-548-7468 to inquire about forms, fees and the procedures necessary to do an adult adoption.

Q:
I was adopted when I was a baby. Where can I find information about my birth parents?  

Wisconsin law does not allow information about adoptions, birth parents, or individuals to be released without a court order. To get a court order you must complete a search request through the State Adoption Records Search Program. They can be contacted by writing or calling:
