If you are seeking information on how to change a birth record after adoption, please reference the Adoption FAQs.
The Illinois Adoption Registry and Medical Information Exchange (IARMIE) program provides a means by which registrants may authorize or prohibit the release of identifying information, including a copy of the adopted person's original birth certificate, to others involved in their surrender or adoption. Confidential facts may be released to registrants only after at least two specified parties to the adoption have filed explicit mutual consent for the exchange of this information.
Vital medical information may be exchanged anonymously by an adopted or surrendered person (a person given up for adoption, but not adopted) or family members if the adopted person is deceased or birth parents and members if the birth parent is deceased through the new Medical Information Exchange. The availability of medical information is dependent on parties to an adoption voluntarily filing and agreeing to exchange these facts.
For more information, please contact the IARMIE at 877-323-5299 (TOLL FREE) or at 217-557-5159.
