When you get ready for a domestic adoption home study, there are a lot of things you have to understand. For starters, you want to make sure that you understand the importance of being prepared, staying organized and knowing exactly what you need to be ready for a domestic adoption homestudy. Our team has decades of experience in this field and we work hard to make sure that our clients are prepared, know exactly what to expect and can easily find the information they need to have a successful experience.
There are a lot of rumors, theories, myths, speculation and other things that you will find online about adopting a child. It can be that the information you find is completely false or that it’s accurate but it doesn’t apply to your situation or even you state. To avoid confusion, we encourage you to take some time to read our Welcome & Checklist or contact us to get real answers. Online resources are a great tool when you are preparing for a domestic adoption homestudy but you want to make sure that you know exactly what you need and that everything is ready for when we come by for the house visit.
Putting together a domestic adoption home study in Florida takes time and patience. There are several things you have to put together and the better prepared you are, the easier things will move a long for you. We take pride in the fact that you have chosen us to assist you with your home study and we will work hard to make sure you are as prepared and ready for the home meeting as possible. Once you have filled out the initial application we will be ready to assist you with the next steps and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Before contacting us you will have a Welcome Instructions/Get Started Checklist which will simplify things for you. The checklist shows what you will need to have prepared. Because you are in Florida there may be some different requirements. For example, if you have children you will need to have a pediatrician report for every child in your immediate family. Everyone above the age of 12 must have a criminal background check done and at least 5 reference letters are encouraged.
Helpful Tip: Getting organized is going to help you during this process. Find out what documents you need, what information is going to help you and what you will be asked to provide. This includes things like your financial documents, income statements, health reports, family history, references and more. What you do not want to do is wait until the documents are needed to find out you do not have something. Get a list early on so you can have everything in order.
Another thing about a domestic adoption home study that we try to make sure everyone is aware of is that it’s not challenging or stressful. It’s a calm walkthrough of your house, your paperwork and getting to know you and your family. That’s it, we are just gathering the information needed to help you submit to an agency. It’s a simple process that, if you have taken the time to be prepared and get all the paperwork done, will be quick and easy.
