Unsealing Adoption/Birth Records in NY #general


Lisa
 

Does anyone have experience on what is involved in having an original
birth certificate and/or adoption file unsealed in New York (City)?
I am trying to help someone who was born in the Bronx in 1931 and was
adopted in Manhattan to find out the names of her birth parents. We know
her birth name but when applying for a birth certifcate under that name
we were told that it was sealed. How does one go about setting a motion
to have it unsealed? Are there support groups and or lawyers in NY who
specialize in this? Can anyone give me any suggestions where to start?
If so, please respond privately. Thank you,
