Making Adjustments to
Your Adoption Forms
Step 1: Make sure you have your forms
and have read them throughly.
Remember: You are in charge of your own case.
You are responsible for what the Adoption forms
say about you and other parties. Therefore,
it is vital that everything you want the Adoption
to do for you, is in the forms. .
Now it's time to do adjustments. Write us an
email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 2: In the email, state
your adjustments in 1,2,3 order. Such as:
1. Please adjust my last name
from Smith to Smyth.
2. Please adjust my address from
123 Oak St. to 123 Cedar St.
3. Please adjust the age of the
adoptee to 5
Step 3: The key to this
adjustment process is stating your adjustments
in a CLEAR, CONCISE, AND EASY FORMAT.
Basically, making it easy for the Paperwork
Processor to make the adjustments quickly. .
Step 4: At this point,
it is also a good time to ask any questions
you may have that pertain to your papers. Remember,
we do NOT give any legal advice. We cannot give
you any information on how you should structure
you case. That is what lawyers get paid to do.
If you have any questions about the legal matters
of your case, we encourage you to see a lawyer.
Once you have the answers you are looking for,
you can always come back and have us adjust
the forms to be exactly what you want. No problem.
Step 5: When you have all
of these things written in an email; send it
to us. We will give you a confirmation email
back, when we receive your adjustments. The
confirmation email will usually come within
24-48 business hours (M-F).
Step 6: When you get the
adjusted forms back, this is the time to look
over your documents again, and make sure they
say what you want them to say. Repeat the adjustment
process if needed.
Step 7: Follow the Final
Instructions and file the forms at your Local
County Courthouse. Good Luck.
Remember: We always do adjustments
for free. So, if you need us, we will be here.
When you are ready to start,
