TULSA, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma's Department of Human Services is looking into a Tulsa adoption agency.

Heritage Family Services and its director Mike Nomura are contracted with the state to administer a report that's done for every case where a child is adopted across state lines.

The chairman of the board for Heritage Family Services is the attorney who represented Matt and Melanie Capobianco as they fought for custody of Veronica Brown.

News On 6 has obtained a letter from the general counsel for DHS saying they are examining Heritage Family Services' performance.

The inquiry comes four months after we reported concerns about a conflict of interest between Heritage's role in filling out the report and the agency's chairman who serves as the attorney for out of state adoptive couples.

Mike Nomura told us he welcomes this review and believes it will show his agency has acted properly.
