The Fond du Lac County Probate Office provides assistance to the public with filing adoptions (minor/adult) and step-parent adoptions with/without the assistance of counsel. (Fond du Lac County will allow you to file an adoption without an attorney; this is not true in other counties, check with your county before proceeding.) Our assistance is limited to procedure, we cannot give legal advice. Adoption forms are available on the Wisconsin Court System website. Adoption records are maintained permanently on site in the Fond du Lac County Probate Office.
