Kay on Tennessee

I am new at the Tennessee searching, there is one person you can contact, she is apart of the "TN Adoption Coalition" and has done extensive work with the Legislator.

They just passed a law last year that pre 51 I believe could have the records opened and now starting July 1st , you may make a request for your sealed file and post adoption file. Before you get them, you will have to sign an affidavit saying you won't use the information until the state has had time to contact the birth parent/s and ask if they want to sign a contact veto. I won't go into the contact veto here but there is a criminal and civil penalty written into the law if you break it.


Please contact Jalena at FFMJ26B@prodigy.com. She has all of the information and is a wonderful person to deal with.
