Parental Locates & Diligent Adoption Searches


Do you need to find a missing child from a foster care home? Lost contact with the parents of a child in the foster care system? Are you in need a diligent adoption search? If you’re a foster care agency or law firm representing a client in New York State, we can help.According to the 2014 report from the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) there are over 402,000 children throughout the US in the foster care system and over 25,000 in New York State alone.

Foster care is the supervised care for neglected, abused, and dependent children who need a safe place to live when parents or relatives can no longer care for them. It is either on a full-time or day-care basis and intended to be a temporary living arrangement.

Culper Investigations Group conducts diligent searches for the purpose of finding children that are missing from a foster home, locating parents with whom a foster care agency have lost contact with, to locating a parent for the purpose of ending their parental rights.

Terminating parental rights is the first step in the legal process for an adoption to take place and a diligent adoption search is required by law before this can happen.
