Generally, yes, except in some cases of kin/relative adoption or a step-parent adoption. In these cases a homestudy MAY be waived. Aside from these given exceptions, everyone who wants to adopt must go through this important step in the adoption process. Also, a homestudy is only valid for one year. If a year passes, and you have not had a child placed with you, you will be required to have another homestudy done. The homestudy requirements may also depend on your state's laws on adoption. My wife and I just adopted twins, a boy and a girl. The judge who heard our case and granted us the adoption did not order a home study. Ours was a private adoption and we were able to take the twins home the day they were born. Home Studies sound intimidating and can be nerve-wracking if you do not know what to expect. It can feel like you're being judged or under a microscope, but they aren't that bad. To ease your mind, talk to someone who has been through the process. Maybe join a group or mailing list. And remember, the homestudy, like so many other aspects of the 'red tape' involved in an adoption, is for the good of the child. And that is what is really important, isn't it? == ==

You cannot. Even in private adoptions - where a birth parent knows you and wants you to raise their child - a home study is required. This is for the protection of the kid.

If the parents agree to it and you get accepted by the home study, yes.

Yes, everything will come out in the home study.

You have to have completed the home study and been approved for adoption. Then if you know a mother willing to give up her child you get a lawyer and she gets one too and they prepare the paperwork. After everyone has signed the lawyers finish it in court where you also have to be to have the adoption finalized.

An adoption home study is a report put together by a social worker of a family that is trying to adopt a child. "An adoption home study is a compilation of different things about a family attempting to adopt. A social worker will take into account a family's community, physical health, finanices and criminal records."

each case is different, but yes: single people can adopt. The person doing the home study will look at your finances, and your support network of friends and family when evaluating you.

Contact a socialworker where you live and take the home study first and then you can stand in line for adoption. I think since Ireland is very small you should look abroad for adoption though because there is a risk you will never get a child otherwise. You can also adopt from foster care.

No. And the child is not given to a agency. If you wish to adopt your brothers child you need to do a homestudy. Without it the court will not approve the adoption. If your brother can not take care of his he can give you temporary custody. He will then pay child support to you. After the home study you can apply for adoption. You will need a lawyer and so will your brother.

Answer If you go through the Department of children and families, they help with the expenses. In Iowa I know all that you pay is time to register to be an adoptive parent by going to classes, background check, and home study. Then when a child or children are found and you think it is a match you wish to make permanent, they will help you adopt the child(s) what ever it takes. My suggestion for you being an adoptive parent, is to become a foster parent too. There is no extra classes, but in you at least get to have the child in the home to see if they are a fit for your family. We had about 20 foster children and we adopted the last 2 children that was placed in our home. There was a few we thought was a fit, and turned out to be just to much for our family.

I'm certain that this condition changes from state-to-state and is also tied into a home-study where it is determined if you have the maturity, and income, (as well as the age), to bring the child up properly.

In some programs of study it can be an elective, and in many it is a requirement (especially in business). Still, everyone should be computer literate no matter what their filed of study.In some programs of study it can be an elective, and in many it is a requirement (especially in business).

Generally, the people who do this work have a degree in social science, education, child development or social work. These are 4 year college degrees.

Minimum age is 18 for you. Your parents have to give up their parental rights and you will have to pass the home study so they know you can support them. Normally there would not be a need for a sibling to adopt but if the siblings need to move out of the home giving custody to the older sibling is usually enough. If the parents are not suitable to have kids the court can remove their parental rights. Then you would have to tell the social worker that you want them and they will do a home study. You can then get custody and your parents will have to pay child support. So if this is a case about neglect contact the social worker handling the case.
