Adoption records are confidential and under court seal. An adoptee who was born or adopted in New York, the birth parents or biological sibling can register with the Adoption Information Registry to obtain certain kinds of information. The Registry helps adoptees obtain available non-identifying information about their birth parents & enables the reunion of registered adoptees with their birth parents and biological siblings.
