Oregon is an "open state" as of 2015, "an adult adoptee can get an original birth certificate."


Original birth certificate

Who may order preadoption birth records?
  • Adoptee must be 21 years of age
  • Adoptee must be born in Oregon
  • Must be the adoptee or their legal representative - not other family members.
Legal representatives should include a notarized permission note from the adoptee.
  • Order must be for a birth record where an adoption report was received, a new birth certificate was created and the original birth record was placed in a sealed file.

Voluntary Adoption Registry

DHS Adoption Services Unit offers a voluntary adoption registry to help people receive adoption information.
Information is available to:
  • Birth parents of an adoptee
  • Adult adoptee
  • An adoptee's genetic sibling who is 18 years of age or older
  • Adoptive parents of a deceased adoptee
  • Adult siblings of deceased birth parents of an adoptee
  • Parents of deceased birth parents of an adoptee
  • Putative father of adult adoptee
When DHS determines a match exists, they notify the affected persons of the match by a direct and confidential method. DHS may recommend appropriate counseling by a DHS social worker prior to the release of identifying information.
