HOME STUDIES FOR ADOPTION
INCLUDING LGBT FAMILIES

All adoptions in the State of Florida require the use of approved home studies for all domestic and international adoptions. A home study includes:

  • A Comprehensive Psychosocial Interview with each prospective parent
  • Background clearances – including a criminal background check & child abuse registry check
  • 2 Home Visits
  • Various forms including but not limited to:
    • Financial Forms
    • References
    • Medical Clearance

This process has three purposes: to educate and prepare the family for adoption, to gather information about the prospective parents and to evaluate the fitness of the adoptive family.

*LGBT adoption is the adoption of children by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons.
