NOTICE OF ADOPTION
Jonathan William Roy is notified that a Verified Petition for the Adoption of a child named Keaira Renee Roy, DOB May 15, 2004, and a child named Kason Wayne Roy, DOB October 7, 2009, both born to Melissa Dawn Richmond, was filed in the office of the Clerk of Warrick Circuit Court, One County Square, #360, Boonville, IN 47601. The Verified Petition for Adoption alleges that your consent to the adoptions is not required pursuant to IC 31-19-9-8 because you have failed without justifiable cause to communicate significantly with the children for a period of one year or more when able to do so and/or you have failed without justifiable cause to provide for the care and support of your children when able to do so as required by law or judicial decree and/or you have abandoned your children in the six months immediately prior to the filing of the adoption petitions and/or you are unfit.
If Jonathan William Roy seeks to contest the adoptions of Keaira Renee Roy and Kason Wayne Roy, Jonathan William Roy must file a motion to contest the adoptions in accordance with IC 31-19-10-1 in the above-named Court not later than thirty (30) days after the date of service of this notice. If Jonathan William Roy does not file a motion to contest the adoption within thirty (30) days after service of this notice, the above-named Court will hear and determine the petition for adoption. The consent to the adoption of Keaira Renee Roy and Kason Wayne Roy by Jonathan William Roy will be irrevocably implied and Jonathan William Roy will lose the right to contest either the adoptions or the validity of Jonathan William Roy’s implied consents to the adoption.
No statement made to Jonathan William Roy relieves Jonathan William Roy of Jonathan William Roy’s 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.
