7. What identifying information will other parties get?

What identifying information about me will the other parties be able to get?

Answer

The other parties will be able to get identifying information about you that was collected by the Department for Child Protection at the time of the adoption. 

They will also be able to get some marriage or change of name details from the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registry, which may allow them to do further searching through electoral rolls and other publicly available sources of information. 

If you and/or other family members are active on social media such as Facebook, you may wish to check that your privacy settings are set to where you feel comfortable about the information that is publicly available.
