Unknown Father

The object of this suit is to obtain the consent of the unknown father to the adoption of a child by the name of James Bryce McCracken, whose date of birth is October 30th, 2022, or in the alternative have the Court determine whether the unknown father's consent is being withheld contrary to the best interests of the child.

It is ORDERED that the Unknown Father, or anyone else who has an interest in the outcome of this proceeding appear at the above-named court and protect his/her interests on or before February 7th, 2023 at 8:45 AM.
