Notice of Adoption

THE STATE OF INDIANA TO:

Jeremy E. Johnson

404 W. Paulding Road

Fort Wayne, IN 46807

Kevin Johnson is notified that a petition for adoption of a child, named DeLani Jo Harris (“Child”), born to Makaylah Paige-Savannah Prible on June 14, 2015, was filed in the office of the clerk of the Wells County Circuit Court, 102 W. Market St., #301, Bluffton, IN 46714.

The petition for adoption alleges that the consent to adoption of Jeremy Eugene Johnson is not required because Jeremy Eugene Johnson has had no meaningful or substantial contact with Child since December 25, 2015.

If Jeremy Eugene Johnson 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 not later than thirty (30) days after the date of service of this notice.

If Jeremy Eugene Johnson does not file a motion to contest the adoption within thirty (30) days after service of this notice the above named court will hear and determine the petition for adoption. The consent to adoption of Jeremy Eugene Johnson will be irrevocably implied and he will lose the right to contest either the adoption or the validity of his implied consent to the adoption.

No statement made to Jeremy Eugene Johnson relieves him of his obligations under this notice.

You are further notified that if you wish to pursue court-order visitation subsequent to a successful adoption, you must respond to this petition within thirty (30) days of service of this notice. Failure to do could result in a default judgment against you.

This notice complies with IC 31-19-4.5-3 but does not exhaustively set forth a person’s legal obligations under the Indiana adoption statutes. A person being served with this notice should consult the Indiana adoption statutes.

Dated: July 18, 2017.
