IN RE THE ADOPTION OF
Jakota Bryair Jayden Gibson, Minor
Cause No. 36D02-1805-AD-00034
NOTICE OF ADOPTION
Eva Michelle Williams is hereby notified that a petition for adoption of child, named Jakota Bryiar Jayden Gibson, born to Eva Michelle Williams and Jeffery Allen Gibson on October 8, 2009, was filed in the office of the clerk of court, 220 E Walnut St, Brownstown, Indiana, 47220. The petition for adoption alleges that the consent to adoption of Jakota Bryiar Jayden Gibson is not required because the parent has abandoned or deserted the child for at least one (1) year immediately preceding the date of the filing of the petition for adoption and/or for the reason that the children have been in the custody of his mother for at least one (1) year when Eva Michelle Williams failed, without justifiable cause, to communicate significantly with the child when able to do so, and/or knowingly failed to provide for the care and support of the child when able to do so as required by law or judicial decree. If Eva Michelle Williams seeks to contest the adoption of the child, Jakota Bryair Jayden Gibson, she must file a motion to contest the adoption 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 Eva Michelle Williams 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 adoption of Jakota Bryiar Jayden Gibson will be irrevocably implied and Eva Michelle Williams will lose the right to contest either the adoption or the validity of Eva Michelle Williams’s implied consent to the adoption. No oral statement made to Eva Michelle Williams relieves Eva Michelle Williams of Eva Michelle Williams’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.
