GETTING STARTED

Please call or email me for a FREE initial consultation.  During the initial consultation, I will gather some information from you to ensure that we cover all of the required aspects of the adoption home study.  I will provide you with a specific quote for services and we can schedule the first of two home visits.

VISIT 1:  ORIENTATION

During this visit, I will provide you with an orientation to the adoption home study process.  We will go over the list of documentation that you'll gather for the home study and I will help you prepare for the safety check of your home. 

VISIT 2: INTERVIEWS & SAFETY CHECK

During this visit, I will gather your completed documentation.  I will engage in a variety of interviews with the members of your household.  Finally, I will conduct the safety check of your home. 

Our work together will culminate in a 10-14 page report which will provide the attorney, judge and/or agency with information about your family, your preparedness for adoption, and my recommendation regarding placement and/or finalization of adoption. 

Results of the background checks typically take 2-6 weeks to come in.  If you would like to begin the application for your background checks, please use the links below.
