Adoption Home Study offers the valuable services required in providing your family with an adoption or guardianship home study for the states of Utah and Idaho. This document is legal according to the State of Utah and State of Idaho Adoption Laws and will be recognized as a legal document and accepted in Courts.

Your study will be completed by either Dr. Alan T. Saunders, Ph.D., L.C.S.W. or Laurie Reef, MS.  Dr. Saunders is licensed by the state of Utah and is recognized as an expert in the Adoption Field.  

If you live in Utah and are going to adopt, you will need an adoption homestudy. This is required by the State of Utah before a child can be placed in your custody as adoptive parents. It is recommended that you complete a homestudy as one of the first steps in your adoption process.  We offer both domestic and international home studies.

Alan has been working in the field of Home and Family and Adoption Services for 18 years and has completed over a hundred home studies. If you are going to adopt, the adoption homestudy is a critical component that must be completed accurately, professionally, legally and in a timely manner. It is recommended that you consider the critical nature of the homestudy. Proven results matter.

The adoption home study report requires the prospective adoptive family to gather different documents, answer several questions, and explore their reasons for adopting. These all become a part of the decision making process for both the prospective family and the workers involved beit attorneys, agencies or the courts. Not only can the report help the worker place a child into your home who would best fit into your family, but help the family and the worker decide if now is a good time for your family to adopt. Adoption home study fees will be based on the services required and location of your residence.

Alan will help you know what to prepare for your home study.  Questions are about your family, past and present; how you feel about discipline, your childhood memories and background. Be prepared to describe your environment. What is your school system like? Which schools will your child/ren attend? Do you have a relationship with your neighbors? What resources does your community offer to help you parent a special needs child? Documentation of all of these characteristics is a necessary part of your home study.

Answers to your questions will be a part of the process and there are many questions that arise in the adoption process.  An adoption home study can be a nerve wracking thing, but if you go in prepared and know what to expect you will get through it just fine! As always, good luck on your adoption journey.
