The main provisions of An Act to amend the Civil Code and other legislative provisions as regards adoption and the disclosure of information, came into force on June 16, 2018. As a result, those who have placed a child up for adoption in the past, will have 12 months to sign a refusal to have their identity kept confidential. Otherwise, as of June 16, 2019, adopted children can learn the identity of their biological parents, should they request it.
