Update on Opening of Birth Records

Connecticut has recently enacted a law which allows many individuals who had been adopted to obtain copies of their original birth certificates as well as medical records, and the Act also includes contact preferences. The Pennsylvania House of Representatives is currently considering a Bill to allow access to original birth certificates. That Bill is still being worked on and has yet to be enacted. New Jersey has already enacted a Bill allowing certain individuals to obtain copies of the original birth certificate. Portions of that Bill will go into effect very shortly and in anticipation of that the New Jersey Bureau of Vital Statistics has posted forms on line to be used.
