PROBATE COURT OF WARREN COUNTY, OHIO JOSEPH W. KIRBY, JUDGE ADOPTION OF Jaxson Jay Koontz CASE NO. 20225037 NOTICE OF HEARING ON PETITION FOR ADOPTION Notice must be served not less than 20 days before the date of hearing [R.C. 3107.11] To: Matthew Freeman, LKA: 3340 Ruden Lane, Columbus, OH 43204 You are hereby notified that on the 10th day of May, 2022, Kyle Eugene Koontz filed in this Court a Petition for Adoption of Jaxson Jay Landolfo, a minor, whose date of birth is March 2, 2016, and for change of the name of the minor to Jaxson Jay Koontz. This Court, located at 900 Memorial Drive, Lebanon, OH 45036 will hear the petition on the 12th day of October, 2022 at 8:30 o'clock A.M. It is alleged in the petition, pursuant to R.C. 3107.07, that the consent of Matthew Freeman is not required due to the following: That person is a parent who has failed without justifiable cause to provide more than de minimis contact with the minor for a period of at least one year immediately preceding the filing of the adoption petition or placement of the minor in the home of the petitioner. "A FINAL DECREE OF ADOPTION, IF GRANTED, WILL RELIEVE YOU OF ALL PARENTAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO CONTACT THE MINOR, AND, EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO A SPOUSE OF THE ADOPTION PETITIONER AND RELATIVES OF THAT SPOUSE, TERMINATE ALL LEGAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE MINOR AND YOU AND THE MINOR'S OTHER RELATIVES, SO THAT THE MINOR THEREAFTER IS A STRANGER TO YOU AND THE MINOR'S FORMER RELATIVES FOR ALL PURPOSES. IF YOU WISH TO CONTEST THE ADOPTION, YOU MUST FILE AN OBJECTION TO THE PETITION WITHIN FOURTEEN DAYS AFTER PROOF OF SERVICE OF NOTICE OF THE FILING OF THE PETITION AND OF THE TIME AND PLACE OF HEARING IS GIVEN TO YOU. IF YOU WISH TO CONTEST THE ADOPTION, YOU MUST ALSO APPEAR AT THE HEARING. A FINAL DECREE OF ADOPTION MAY BE ENTERED IF YOU FAIL TO FILE AN OBJECTION TO THE ADOPTION PETITION OR APPEAR AT THE HEARING." Joseph W.
