In adoption matters, if the identity of a birth parent is known but his or her location is unknown, a diligent adoption search must be performed by a qualified individual in order for an attorney to prove all viable steps were taken to find the missing party. In a diligent search that ends with no successful location information, an affidavit must be completed by the investigator. The purpose for this kind of search is to find a birth parent in order to proceed with an adoption.
