Accompanying children in their search for the family of origin


Adopted children have a right to know about their ancestry. The adoptive parents can also view the files until the child reaches the age of majority.

The adoption agency that arranged the adoption accompanies the inspection of the file in all cases. Information on the origin and life history of the adoptee is accessible. This means that you can't read through the entire file.

The files on adoption agencies are kept for 100 years from the birth of the child. The adoption files are with the youth welfare office that arranged the adoption. Adopted children and their families are also accompanied in the search for their biological parents by specialists from the adoption agency.

If you wish, you can also get anonymous advice for the time being.

They must have been adopted. Everything else will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

Information, advice and support are free of charge.
