What is a Home Study in the Kansas Adoption Process?
A home study is one of the first steps in the adoption process for prospective adoptive families in Kansas. If you don’t know, a home study is a point in the adoption process where an adoption specialist comes to your home and assesses it to ensure you can offer a suitable living environment and situation for your future child.
Outside of the physical space, the adoption professional will also interview all family members, ask for references, and assess your important records, including your financial and health documents. You should gather all of these before your adoption professional arrives.
We know you still have questions, but don’t worry: we are about to go into more detail…
Why is a Home Study an Important Part of Adoption in Kansas?
Remember, a home study is not a test. It is a process through which you and your family can show the adoption specialist how you live together and how you interact. It is the adoption professional’s job to determine, through what you show them, whether your family is ready to adopt a child.
While it can be stressful, the home study is an integral part of the adoption process because it helps us ensure that all the children people place for adoption go to secure and stable homes filled with people who will love and care for them.
What Does a Home Study Entail in KS Adoption?
Like we said before, when an adoption professional comes to your home for a home study, they will assess the space, look at your financial and health records, conduct a background check, interview you and your family, and read your references and autobiographical statements.
Specifically, the financial records you should gather include a copy of your income tax form, your pay stub, a W-2 form, health and life insurance documents, and papers proving any of your other debts or investments. Remember, you don’t have to be wealthy to adopt a child, but you do have to show that you are responsible when it comes to your finances.
As far as health forms, you will need proof of an updated physical exam (within the last 12 months). You will also need a recent Tuberculosis test. Some other documents you should gather are birth certificates for all family members and any legal documents which could affect the adoption, such as marriage licenses or divorce papers in relevant cases.
