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:
