Benefits of an Agency Home Study

Most U.S. states require an agency to supervise your adoption

By completing the home study with an agency such as Adoption Choices of New York, you already have the agency in place to complete your post placement reports.

More options

With an agency home study, you can pursue an agency, private, independent, identified, step or second parent adoption anywhere in the United States.

Child abuse and criminal clearances

As part of the agency home study process, you will receive child abuse, state and FBI criminal clearances, which are needed to get interstate approval to bring your child home to New York.

Resources and referrals

Adoption Choices, is committed to helping you before, during and after your adoption. Referrals, guidance and advice are available.
