Who may register?
You may register if you are over 18 and your adoption, your child’s or your sibling’s adoption was legally finalized in the State of Louisiana.
How do I get on the registry?
Contact the registry at (225) 342-9922 or 1-800-259-2456 and request a Voluntary Registry packet which will provide all the information necessary for registration. The process includes completion of an affidavit and a $25.00 fee. There is also a counseling requirement that must be met prior to voluntary release of any identifying information, but this is not required in order to register.
Cost - $25 (Can be waived if one cannot afford)
