Would you like to find out who your biological parents are?

We are lawyers located and licensed in the State of Florida. By law, adoption records in Florida are confidential. We have found a legal method of having your adoption file opened by court order, which in turn may reveal the identity of one or both of your biological parents or other relatives.

If you were adopted in the State of Florida and you were born prior to January 1, 1976, we may be able to help you find one or both of your biological parents or other relatives. We cannot guarantee that everyone’s adoption file reveals the identity or the whereabouts of their biological parents. However, we have tried our method of opening confidential adoption files and know it works.

Our fee is $1,500.00 plus costs. If we are unsuccessful in getting your adoption file opened, we will refund $1,000.00 of your fee to you. “Unsuccessful” means that both the court and the adoption agency will not allow any information to be divulged from your adoption file or that your adoption file cannot be found by both the clerk of the court and the adoption agency. In the event we are successful in having your adoption file opened, we are entitled to retain the entire $1,500.00 fee - regardless of what information is obtained by opening the file. If you would like to talk to us about helping you find your biological parents or other relatives, please call Paul M. Eakin at (904) 247-6565 or e-mail him at our contact page today. He will be happy to talk to you and answer any questions you might have about getting started.
