National Adoption Day

The Clerk’s office will support the National Adoption Day celebration this year at its Durango location with a full file counter staff, a courtroom clerk for each participating division, and members of the management team. Friday, October 5 is the adoption petition deadline to participate in the 2018 event. The deadline for all other adoption paperwork is Friday, October 19 to participate in November’s event.

In addition to adoption petition filings, the Clerk’s office now receives all subsequent filings for adoption cases at the Durango and Southeast facilities. In previous years, subsequent documents were submitted to the court’s Adoptions Unit and were filed with the Clerk’s office after the adoption hearing. The Clerk’s office recently worked with the superior court and adoption attorneys to transition all filings back to the Clerk’s office.

National Adoption Day takes place Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Juvenile Court Center located at 3131 W. Durango St. in Phoenix. The public is welcome to attend this free event celebrating the adoption of children in our community. Attendees will find well-known local figures, mascots, games, photo opportunities, and other ways to enjoy this family-friendly celebration.
