Paying for MY information

If you follow me on the forums, you'll know that I've been having a little bit of a problem submitting my "Request to search, and Permission to Search" paperwork. I have all of the information that I need I just don't have the outrageous $500 fee!!!

As stated on the forums by others, a $50 fee I understand, and maybe even $100 at the most. My problem lies with the fact, that I have to pay for MY information. And here's the kicker, I doubt I'd even get my original birth certificate, or any of MY information. I just gives me permission to search, IF my 1 st mother has provided her information for me to search. It will also give her my information, IF she is looking for me....

.... So, how do you feel about this topic? Do you think the fee is unreasonable? Or am I just being overly sensitive?

  1. $500 seems a little exhorbitant to me. I would think that it would almost feel like they are holding your identity hostage. Good luck in your quest and thank you for your blog.
