False Statements

Under the Adoption Act 2013, it is an offence to make a statement that the person knows to be false or misleading in an application, or in connection with an application, for a copy of a birth registration or other record from the Vital Statistics Division, or for filing a disclosure veto or a no-contact declaration.

A person who makes a false statement commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine or imprisonment.
