JAMES BRADLEY BARRETT, A MINOR
NOTICE BY PUBLICATION
To: Amerida Deron Barrett
Amerida Deron Barrett is notified that a Petition for Adoption of James Bradley Barrett, a child born to Crystal Dawn White on December 4, 2001, was filed by James Cole in the office of the Clerk of the Scott Superior Court, Courthouse, 1 E. McClain Avenue, Scottsburg, Indiana 47170. The Petition for Adoption alleges that the consent to adoption of James Bradley Barrett is not required because Amerida Deron Barrett has failed to significantly communicate with the child when able to do so for more than the one year preceding the filing of the petition for adoption.
If Amerida Deron Barrett seeks to contest the adoption of the child, he must file a motion to contest the adoption in accordance with IC 31-19-10-1 in the Scott Superior Court not later than 30 days after the last publication of this notice.
If Amerida Deron Barrett does not file a motion to contest the adoption within 30 days after the last publication of this notice, the Scott Superior Court will hear and determine the petition for adoption, and the consent to adoption of James Bradley Barrett will be irrevocably implied, and Amerida Deron Barrett will lose the right to contest either the adoption or the validity of his implied consent to the adoption.
No oral statement made to Amerida Deron Barrett relieves him of his obligations under this notice.
This notice complies with IC 31-19-4.5-3 but does not exhaustively set forth a person’s legal obligations under the Indiana adoption statutes. A person being served with this notice should consult the Indiana adoption statutes.
