Home Study Services Tampa
One area that seems to always hold people up when they ask for home study services in Tampa are the reference letters. This seems like an easy thing but if you read the fine print you need to make sure that you give yourself time to get them together and choose the best people for the task. In the state of Florida, you need to get 5 reference letters together. However, only one can be from a family member. The rest of them need to be from non-family members and they need to be completed and either emailed, mailed or scanned by PDF prior to the visit. It’s also important to note that if you have worked with children in the past five years, one of your references must come from the employer at that job. That’s something that people are not always prepared for which is why it’s important to give yourself time and read the fine print.
