Florida Home Study Process
As you prepare for the Florida home study process you want to make sure that you have the assistance and guidance of an experienced agency. As we only focus on the studies, we are able to help you with getting it done faster, speeding up the adoption process and helping you save time.
Preparing for the home study is not difficult. It just requires organization and time. The people who have problems are the ones who wait until the last minute. There are so many things you have to collect and get ready for that it’s important you give yourself as much time as possible. Here are a few things that seem to slow people down the most:
- Medical Reports: Every child and adult living in the home must have a doctor fill out the necessary reports.
- Reference Letters: You need 5 letters completed, 1 family member and 4 non-family members. There is a format they want the letters to be done and if you have prior experience working with children, one of the letters must be done by your employer at that time.
- Financial Documents: This will include life insurance, bank statements, and proof of employment. If you are self-employed then you will need your accountant to fill out the information for proof of employment.
- Background Checks: Anyone 12 years old or older who lives in the home needs to have a background check done. The process is very simple but you need to make sure you give yourself time to have it done.
