STATE OF INDIANA, COUNTY OF PULASKI
IN THE PULASKI CIRCUIT COURT
IN THE MATTER OF THE ADOPTION OF HARLEE NEWNUM
CAUSE NO. 66C01-1705-AD-0005
NOTICE TO CHASE NEWNUM, NAMED FATHER
Chase Newnum, who has been named the father of the child born to Rebecca Johnson on the 30th day of December, 2013, is notified that a petition for adoption of the child was filed in the office of the Clerk of Pulaski Circuit Court, 112 E Main St, Ste. 230, Winamac, IN 46996. The petition for adoption alleges that Chase Newnum has abandoned and deserted the child.
If Chase Newnum wishes to contest the adoption of the child he must file a motion to contest the adoption in accordance with IC 31-19-10-4.5 in the above named court within thirty (30) days after the date of service of this notice.
If Chase Newnum 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. His consent will be irrevocably implied and he will lose his right to contest either the adoption or the validity of his implied consent to the adoption. He will lose his right to establish his paternity of the child under IC 31-14-4.
Nothing Rebecca Johnson or anyone else says to Chase Newnum relieves Chase Newnum 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. For purposes of this notice, Chase Newnum is a putative father under the laws in Indiana regarding adoption.
