I complete the required report which approves a family for adoption.
During the Process
My report includes visits to the home, a safety check of the home environment, background checks, as well as information about the family’s background, financial situation, medical information, and personal references. The home study takes about 4 weeks to complete depending on background checks.
After the Process
Once the home study is complete, it is valid for a year and can be used with any attorney, any private agency (not DHS), and in any state. If the report expires, it can be easily updated.
As we begin the home study evaluation together, it is important to become familiar with the steps involved in this process. Please take a moment to review our Forms and FAQs and contact me with any questions. I look forward to meeting with you and assisting in your adoption.
If we have not spoken yet, please call or email me for a free consultation.
