Adopted Child Locate Investigation:
Birth parent or adopted child searches are some of the most poignant and complex of all locating and find searches, primarily because of antiquated laws and official resistance which denies you, an adult adoptee, the privilege of finding and searching your own birth records. With adoption, some states provide confidential intermediaries, but they are hard to use and find. CTK INVESTIGATIONS can help you with these as part of these types of investigations.
Adoption creates doubts and questions for birth parents that just won’t go away. Where is my child? Did I do the right thing by giving him/her up? What does s/he look like now? Would we know each other if we passed on the street? Children who know that they have been adopted are haunted by uncertainties as well. Why didn’t my biological family want me? Does either of my parents miss me? Does my mother remember me on my birthday? Have I inherited some condition or predilection that I need to be aware of to protect my health and wellbeing? Do I have siblings that might be happy to know me? Yes, an abundance of questions exist post adoption for all concerned, but the answers are often allusive, and presumably unattainable.
Finding the person or family you lost because of adoption is an arduous and time-consuming process to pursue on your own. If you wish to find your lost loved ones on your own, here are five steps you need to take before making a significant financial investment in the search.
Adoption Reunion Registries: Adoption search and support groups, and some U. S. States, maintain adoption registries that can be searched free of charge. In order to use a registry database you will need information such as the lost person’s name and other identifying information, including the date of birth, hospital where born, and physical description. After entering your information into the database, we begin our investigative research which attempts to match your information with someone else who has entered like information. In order for registries to work both parties must be registered and actively engaged in finding each other.
Research State Adoption Laws: Although federal laws exist that govern the release of adoption information, each state also has its own laws that may restrict or promote access to records. Depending on when and where an adoption took place, records of the event may be either opened or sealed. Minor children are protected in all states, so if the person you are trying to locate is under age 18 it is likely that you will not be able to access the information you seek.
Join an Adoption Support Group: Seeking a person lost to you through adoption is an emotionally charged experience. Becoming a member of a support group will provide you with the opportunity to communicate with others who understand how you feel, and it will make you part of an information network. Others who are searching might run across information you need, and will forward it to you. CTK INVESTIGATIONS, LLC can assist in this process.
Genealogical Search: Tracing a family history is one means of locating missing family members. The Church of the Latter Day Saints has the largest, predominately free database in the world that archives family histories. A full staff of professional genealogists is also available to assist you with your search.
Adoption Agency: The private or governmental agency who handled the adoption may be willing to release information to an inquiring party. Agencies are restricted, however, by State and Federal law, as well as their own policies and protocols concerning how much, and what kind of information they are willing release.
If searching these five avenues proves fruitless, there are a number of other options available to you, but they all come with a price tag. You can hire an attorney, an intermediary, a consultant, or a Florida private investigator to help you locate your missing family member(s). CTK INVESTIGATIONS, LLC and our Florida private investigators are particularly knowledgeable about all aspects of “people search,” and will look for information in places that those focused strictly on “adoption investigation” might ignore. Using the creative approaches of an investigator can shorten your search, and be less costly in the end than conducting the search on your own, or using an adoption-oriented expert.

Birth Parent Locate Investigation:
Birth Parent search and locate is one of the most poignant and complex of all locating and find searches, primarily because of antiquated laws and official resistance which denies you, an adult adoptee, the privilege of finding and searching your own birth records. This is how CTK INVESTIGATIONS, LLC can help. When you do an adoption search with CTK INVESTIGATIONS, LLC, everything is kept confidential and everything we do is discreet.
In a quest for someone to find a biological (birth) parent, it is essential to consider the possibilities of a name change. This is more specific to finding a birth mother, as a marriage or divorce can change the last name. Not having such information could cause unnecessary stress and discouragement in the search. When possible, get as much information on both birth parents as humanly possible. The more information obtained prior to the search, the easier it can be to get the results that are being sought.
The best way to familiarize with the adoption process is to review the documents that would be used in an adoption. This can be used as a guide to the information needed in finding a biological parent. If the entire or most of the paperwork can be filled out, then enough information is probably retained to begin the search. If not enough information is available, it may be necessary to get more info before continuing in the search. The adoptive parents may be able to assist in this part of the search.
In learning about the adoption process, seek advice on information and become familiar with the many agencies and resources available. Find all of the available records in the state, county, local and national facilities where the child was born. It can be overwhelming, but persistence can pay off. In the Directory section of the State and National Records, some useful information can be found and help in finding answers to some of the questions that were not answered up until this point. The records should have valuable and useful information on the location of the birth parents at the time of the child’s birth.
Some key information to have for a more effective search will be the birth parents names. Find out if the biological parents were married to one another. The location they lived in around the birth of the child that was put up for adoption. If able to find the location of the birth parent or parents find out if they have or had family in the area they lived in. Sometimes a physical description will be in the original adoption paperwork, which can be useful in a search. The occupation each birth parent had around the time of the birth of the child.
Ages or approximate ages of the birth parents can help weed out leads of potential biological parents. Try to determine the religious background of either of the biological parents, if that is available; it can be helpful in going to the place of worship and possibly get leads on the birth parents whereabouts now. Medical issues and background can help in locating them now, if there was a pre-existing issue around the birth of the child. The birth parents reason for relinquishing rights to the child can also give an idea to where they might be presently.
It is not as essential to have all pertinent information about the biological father. It can sometimes be easier to locate the birth father because it is very uncommon for a man to change his name. It can be more difficult if the important information for the birth mother is not complete. Most of the records pertaining to the adoption will be in the birth mother's name. It is still very good to get as much information about both of the birth parents as possible. The more information that is known the easier the search should be.
