In response to your letter dated March 17, 1999 [editorial note: the letter had been dated 2-15-99] we comply with all the statutes pertaining to adoption information. We do not have any special mandatory policies in the court. Actually, we do not get many requests or petitions for adoption information.
We do have a list of qualified/certified counselores, and if you wish to be added to that list, you may send me the qualifications and certifications of any individuals who may wish to be listed.
The Clerk of Courts of Monroe County should be contacted pertaining to their fee bill for filing any papers pertaining to adoptions. That telephone number is 570-420-3716.
