Home Study Providers
It’s not challenging to find home study providers in Florida. However, it’s important to note that you need more than just a provider, you need someone who is going to help you prepare, someone who has the experience needed to properly advise you on what to do.
Preparing For The Home Study
The study is the first part of the adoption process and in many ways, the most important. This is where you gather and submit the documents for review that will help determine if you are a good fit for the child you are looking to adopt. There are so many things that need to be done and it’s important to remember that you do not want to rush any of it. Give yourself time to get organized and it will make the entire process run a lot smoother. Here are a few things you need to gather as you get ready:
- Financial Documents: Everything including your bank statements, employment verification, life insurance policies and more will be reviewed. This is important because your ability to support a family needs to be taken into account before you are given a child. It’s not that you need to be wealthy in order to adopt. The goal is to ensure that the child will be well provided for which is why they want to see your financial documents.
- Background Checks: This will include reference letters, criminal background checks and more. The goal is to make sure that you cover every area to ensure there are no delays. Everyone 12 years old or older who live in the house are subject to checks.
