No one has forced or coerced me to sign this General Consent to Adoption. No one has made any promises whatsoever to me in return for signing this General Consent to Adoption.

CONFIDENTIALITY PURSUANT TO HRS 578-15:
13. 14. 15. I have been advised of the requirements of Section 578-15 of the Hawai`i Revised Statutes regarding confidentiality of the court's adoption file. When my child becomes 18 years old, my child or the adoptive parents can request, in writing, to see the court's file regarding this adoption. If I do not want the Family Court to reveal my identity to my child or the adoptive parents, I must file an affidavit requesting confidentiality with the Family Court (on this island that the adoption occurred) within ninety (90) calendar days before my child's 18th birthday. This affidavit is good for ten (10) years. After that, I can file an affidavit every ten (10) years or I can file an affidavit to keep my identity confidential for the rest of my life. All affidavits must be filed within ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the previous affidavit. After my child reaches 18 years old, I can request to see the court's adoption file, too, but my child has the same rights as I do the keep the file confidential. My decision to keep my information confidential or not applies to only me and does not apply to the other natural parent. I can agree to open up the adoption file at any time and my child can to after turning 18 years old. It will be my responsibility to keep the Family Court informed of my current address if I want disclosure to be made. The Family Court has no responsibility to notify the child, adoptive parent(s) or the natural parent(s) of any deadlines or expiration dates.
