I have an unplanned trip to Probate Court

We have to straighten a few things with Social Security in regards to Gavin turning eighteen and transitioning to permanent disability. One of those things requires his adoption decree which for the life of me, I cannot find.

It used to be in the safe but it must have been pulled at some point and not returned.

SSA called this morning and let me know we needed this ASAP. For some reason, Gavin’s name is still Gavin Weaver in their records and we’ve no idea why. It’s an easy fix but it requires paperwork we can’t find.



We called Probate Court and I have to write a letter, explaining why I need it. They will give the letter to the judge for approval. If she approves the request, I’ll pay two whole dollars, pick up the papers and then fax them to the SSA.

I’m not looking forward to going to the courthouse cause we haven’t been there since the adoption and I’ve been okay with that. Hopefully, it’ll be a quick and painless process. I’ll need to wait for a phone call to let me know whether or not the request was approved.

I don’t know why we can’t just pick it up but whatever I have to do…
