A Petition has been filed
asking the court to put an end
to all rights you have to your
child, Jayella Payton Betz a/k/a
Jayella Betz. The court has set
a hearing to consider ending
your rights to your child. That
hearing will be held at The
Family Court Building, 550
Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA
15219 on Wednesday,
February 6, 2019, at 11:00
a.m., prevailing time, before
the Honorable Dwayne D.
Woodruff. You are warned that
even if you fail to appear at
the scheduled hearing, the
hearing will go on without you
and your rights to your child
may be ended by the court
without your being present.
You have a right to be
represented at the hearing by
a lawyer. You should take this
paper to your lawyer at once.
If you do not have a lawyer or
cannot afford one, go to or
telephone the office set forth
below to find out where you
can get legal help.
This is also to inform you of an
important option that may be
available to you under
Pennsylvania law. Act 101 of
2010 allows for an
enforceable voluntary
agreement for continuing
contact or communication
following an adoption
between an adoptive parent, a
child, a birth parent, and/or a
birth relative of the child, if all
parties agree and the
voluntary agreement is
approved by the court. If you
are interested in learning
more about this option for a
voluntary agreement, contact
your attorney or:
