 ****Please note: Oklahoma does not have a public child abuse registry. Oklahoma State Statutes are very specific as to what Child Welfare Services information maintained by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services can be released.  Such records may only be made available when a current child abuse and neglect investigation is being conducted on an individual(s) by a child protective services agency, a district attorney’s office, or a public law enforcement agency.  Otherwise a court order rendered in Oklahoma is required for release of child abuse and neglect information.  Requests for history for any other purpose, including foster care and placement will be sent a response letter stating the above information.  Furthermore per Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. § 671 once a State has verified that another State does not maintain a CAN registry, the requesting State is not required to keep making requests to that State to make a registry check.  States that do not maintain a CAN registry are not required by section 471(a)(20)(C)(ii) of the Social Security Act to provide child abuse and neglect information to a requesting State on adult members of a prospective foster or adoptive parent’s home.
