All adoptees 18 and older need to access to their original noncertified birth certificates unless a birth parent files a contact preference form indicating that he or she doesn’t want the information released. 

Post-adoption birth certificate lists the adoptive parent(s) and reflects any legal name change after the adoption is finalized and the birth record has been amended.
