Effect on subsequent searches when person sought in initial search refuses contact
(1) If an adult adoptee or the adoptive parent of a minor or deceased adoptee has initiated a search under ORS 109.502 (Search for birth parents, putative father or genetic siblings), the fact that the person being sought in the original search does not wish to make contact does not prevent the adult adoptee or the adoptive parent from requesting another search for a birth parent or putative father not previously contacted. An adult adoptee or the adoptive parent of a minor or deceased adoptee may not request a search for a genetic sibling of the adoptee if there was a previous search for a birth parent of the adoptee and the birth parent did not want to make contact with the adult adoptee or adoptive parent.
(2) The adult adoptee or adoptive parent of a minor or deceased adoptee shall request the search by repeating the process set out in ORS 109.502 (Search for birth parents, putative father or genetic siblings) and by paying the fees established by the Department of Human Services pursuant to ORS 109.506 (Rulemaking). [1993 c.410 §5; 1997 c.442 §11]
