My daughter was born July 27, 1962. She was adopted when she was 7 or 8 years old. I am no longer married to her adoptive father. She wants her original birth certificate corrected. Her biological father lives In Arkansas. A wwII veteran. He may not be alive. I have had all courts searched for the Court Record on paternity and child support for 1962 and 1963 and nothing was found. Can the b/c be corrected?
My daughter has an ulterior motive in this. Her biological father was part Cherokee Indian and she feels she should be a part of that heritage. I am willing to spend any reasonable amount to get her b/c corrected. At the time I was under a lot of stress and put down a man's name as father when he wasn't. Do you need more information?
Thank you very much. She seems to think it would be a simple matter to correct it. How difficult is it to get a Court Order? I could pay $200 a month for several months.
