NOTICE TO BIOLOGICAL FATHER

     The biological father of the child born to Staci Thornburgh, now Stahly on December 30, 2003, or the person who claims to be the father of the child, is notified that a Petition for Adoption of the child was filed on September 8, 2017, in the office of the Clerk of Circuit Court, 105 N. Detroit St., LaGrange, Indiana, 46761.

     If the biological father wishes to contest the adoption of the child, the biological father must file a Motion to Contest the Adoption in accordance with Indiana Code 31-19-10-1 in the above named Court or a paternity action under Indiana code 31-14 within thirty (30) days after service of this notice.  This notice may be served by publication.

     If the biological father does not file a Motion to Contest the Adoption or a paternity action under Indiana Code 31-14 within thirty (30) days after the service of this notice, or after filing a paternity action under Indiana Code 31-14, fails to establish paternity within a reasonable period as determined by the paternity Court under Indiana Code 31-14-21-9 through Indiana Code 31-14-21-11, the above named Court shall hear and determine the Petition for Adoption.  The biological father’s consent is irrevocably implied and the biological father loses the right to contest the adoption or the validity of the biological father’s implied consent to the adoption.  The biological father loses the right to establish paternity of the child under Indiana Code 31-14.

      Nothing Staci Thornburgh, now Stahly or anyone else says to the biological father relieves the biological father 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.

     I have hereunto set my hand, and seal of said Court, the _12th_ day of September, 2017.
