COUNTY OF WELLS, SS:
IN THE WELLS
CIRCUIT COURT
2013 TERM
IN RE THE ADOPTION OF
ARIANNA JOLIE SKEENS
TRAVIS M. CRAIG
Petitioner
Cause No.
27D01-1103-AD-000004
NOTICE TO ADOPTION
TO UNKNOWN FATHER
Notice is hereby given to the unnamed putative father of the child, born to Adrianne J. Craig (Skeens), on February 18,2008, or the person who claims to be the father of the child born to Adrianne J. Craig (Skeens) on February 18, 2008, and is hereby notified that a Petition for adoption of the child was filed in the office of the Clerk of Wells Circuit Court, Bluffton, Indiana. If said unnamed putative father seeks to contest the adoption of the child, he must file a motion to contest the adoption in accordance with IC 31-19-10-1 in the above named court, or a paternity action under IC 31-14 not later than thirty (30) days after the date of service of this notice. If said unnamed father does not file: (A) a motion to contest the adoption; or (B) a paternity action under IC 31-14 with thirty (30) days after service of this notice; or after filing a paternity action under IC 31-14 fails to establish paternity within a reasonable period as determined by the paternity court under IC 31-14-21-9 through IC 31-14-21-11, then the above named court will hear and determine the petition for adoption. His consent will be irrevocably implied and he will lose his right to contest either the adoption or the validity of his implied consent to the adoption. He will lose his right to establish his paternity of the child under IC 31-14. Nothing Adrianne J. Craig (Skeens) or anyone else says to said unnamed putative father relieves him of his obligations under this notice. Under Indiana law, a putative father is a person who is named as or claims that he may be the father of a child born out of wedlock but who has not yet been legally proven to be the child’s father.
