Welcome to the Records Management Web page. The Records Management Office is here to help you locate records for children that were, or still are, in DCS custody.
There are many different types of records, such as education, medical, adoption, juvenile justice, and others, all obtained by different methods. So, first, determine what type of record you want to find.
Important Note: If the records you are seeking are to be used for a court case of any type, we must have a subpoena from the court. Subpoenas may be submitted to:
Department of Children’s Services, Access to Adoption Records.
Medical files are only kept for a specific amount of time after a child is no longer in DCS Custody, i.e.,until the child reaches age 29, and then destroyed. This is in accordance with Federal and State guidelines If the child has not reached age 29, fill out the Records Request form and send it, along with a photo copy of your government issued form of identification, to the following address listed above or by e-mail.
If you attended a State run DCS facility and are seeking a copy of your education file or transcript, fill out the Records Request form and send it, along with a photo copy of your government issued form of identification, to the following address listed above or by email.
