How to apply
If you are an adopted adult who was adopted on or after December 30th 2005 or a birth relative of someone adopted on or after December 30th 2005 and you have been given a qualifying determination by your adoption agency which you don’t agree with, you can either apply to the IRM for a review of the adoption agency's qualifying determination or you can make representations to your adoption agency. The cost of having your case reviewed is met by your agency.
You can apply in writing or by email to the IRM. You need to explain why you disagree with the decision. At this stage your information does not need to be detailed you will have a further opportunity to submit more information if you so wish.
