Wisconsin law does not allow information about adoptions, birth parents, or individuals to be released without making a request through the Adoption Records Search Program. Court orders to obtain information from an adoption file are only possible after completion of a search request through the State Adoption Records Search Program. All adoption search requests should be directed to this agency. They can be contacted by writing or calling: Adoption Records Search Program, P.O. Box 8916, Madison, WI 53708-8916, telephone 608-266-7163. Their website link is http://www.dhfs.state.wi.us/Children/adoption/adsearch.htm
