Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
have you had the mandatory counselling?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Clare i do not have a problem with the fact that i was adopted. and at my age in life it would be a bit late to go for any kind of counselling,although i have been in touch with the Wolverhampton adoption society, who have searched their records, and have no record of my adoption in there files. there advice was to apply to the Wolverhampton magistrates ?
Clare my question was have i the right to a transcript of the documentation leading up to my adoption order,and its reasons for granting it.
And where should i apply for this information.hopefully keith
