Request a copy of your personal DFS file.

Files containing information regarding your history with DFS are considered confidential and therefore are not subject to Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests.  However the Department does have a process for individuals to obtain copies of their own records (note: you cannot request information about a record other than your own).

A written request for your record should be sent to Kriston Lowry-Sims at 1825 Faulkland Rd., Wilmington, DE 19805.  You may also send your written request via FAX to Ms. Lowry-Sims attention at (302) 633-2652.

Upon receipt of your request and determination of legal authorization to view the records, you will be contacted.  You will be required to show identification in order to review the records in question.

For attorneys who wish to submit a records request.

Please contact Sandra Harris, Administrative Specialist II directly at . Once Ms. Harris has received your records request, she will provide you with the appropriate release form to start the process.  Please do not submit records requests through your client’s case worker!
