Every child deserves a loving family.

Adoption
Biological Father Registry

The Nebraska Biological Father Registry is an expansion of a previously established listing of men who wanted to preserve their right to receive notice of adoption proceedings that involve their children born out of wedlock.

The Registry consists of men who voluntarily file the required notice with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, as well as any man -- made known to the Department -- who has been found to be a father by a court of competent jurisdiction.

To check the Nebraska State Statutes related to the Biological Father Registry, visit the Nebraska Unicameral's Website , and click on "statutes".  Then, click on "Chapter 43. Infants and Juveniles".  The relevant sections can be found at 43-104.01 through 43-104.24.


Notice of Objection to Adoption and Intent to Obtain Custody -- for fathers who want to indicate an intention to seek custody of the child within thirty (30) days of the filing.

Request for Notification of Intended Adoption -- for fathers who want to indicate their paternity of the child without seeking immediate custody.
