Birth parent search

In many cases, adoptees do not seek to locate their biological parents for a variety of reasons, one of the most common being a fear of hurting the adopted parents. In reality, however, most adoptive parents adopted in the first place with the understanding that their adopted children will one day grow up and want answers.

It is of the utmost importance that a search for biological parents be performed with discretion and care. Because of this, our professionals offer advice as to possible ramifications of such a search and make our clients aware of the possibility of unforeseen consequences. At EPIS, we will support our client's decisions throughout the entire search process.

It is also important to understand that searching for a birth parent can be very simple but in some cases very time consuming. We will try to give you an indication of the complexity of the case on our first meeting or discussion. It is common for an individual to want to know and understand their roots and their past. Children who are adopted often grow up without this knowledge, which can leave the feeling that something is missing despite having a loving environment with their adopted parents.

Often questions such as "Who do I look like?" or "Why was I put up for adoption?" arise and become so strong that the need for answers becomes essential.

Steps for Locating Adoptees, Birth Parents, and Adoption Records

Searches for birth parents or adoptee occur routinely in the United States, where it has been estimated that over 6 million American have been touched by adoption in one way or another. The reasoning behind these searches is as unique as the individuals involved, however the most common in simple curiosity. Major events such as a birth or death also provide those involved with the urge to actively seek out their biological parents or adopted children.

What is a birth parent?

A parent provides the care in a mother or father role of a child. For most children this refers to biological parents. On the other side of this, however, is the role that adoptive parents play.

The term "birth parent" refers to the biological mother or father of a child.

My Son found Mike at Empire Pacific because we needed a detective in order to find someone. We had spend a lot of time and money on many search people websites and never found anything current on the person we were trying to find. We hired Mike to do an initial check to find the person. Mike called and said on the initial check that he had found what we needed, he said the second step would be to go look by foot and there would be a fee per hour. About 2 hours later Mike called and told us he had found the person and gave me his current phone number. I called and sure enough it was the person I was looking for. Now this shows how honest Mike is because he could have easily billed me for a few extra hours of leg work (which is paid per the hour) and I would not have known he already found the person. Mike was very attentive when I called and either picked up his phone or called me back very fast. I would highly recommend Mike, he is vey good at what he does and is respectful, honest and FAST!

Mike Hakimi from EPIS is a true professional. He helped me with my case. He delivers effectively and fast! I was trying to find someone that nobody has heard from him from since the late 90's, I was very unsure he was still around. I needed to find him and interview him for my movie project. A key character. And Mike incredibly found him. Don't hesitate hiring Mike for any type of service.

I have highest, highest praise for Mike at Empire Pacific Investigative Services. I had to take someone to court and I was concerned whether sheriff is efficient enough to do the serving or they will just attempt and I pay for nothing. I talked to Mike about serving this particular person and on top of it I try to force future steps of collection and Mike was extremely helpful to show me in and outs of all the options that I have and how he can help me.

My concern was the person that I am suing would play hide and seek, not available during the day and difficult to catch. Sure enough Mike served the paper within 2 to 3 days and informed me accordingly.

I am so happy to know Mike and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that has needs for his services.

I contacted Mike at Empire to do some research for me on an old insurance claim. It ended up not being along the lines of work that he was an expert in but what was so great about the experience was that Mike went out of his way to find me someone that did specialize in the area. If you are considering a couple options on who you need for your investigation you...
