As of 1 July 2010 attorney’s may search the Responsible Father Registry. This link will take you to the registration page; an attorney who wishes to search the registry for a pending adoption or termination of parental rights matter will need to register through the above link to be authorized to search the registry.

The registration process takes fewer than five minutes to complete, and once complete, the individual registering will receive an e-mail from the Department of Social Services with a confirmation number to set-up an account within five business days of registering. I received my number within an hour of registering.

I have reviewed the website; the search is free and the cost is $50.00 to receive a certificate of diligent search.

Contact my office at 843-267-0906 or if you need help in registering.
