Home Study

Adoption laws in every state require prospective adoptive parents to complete a pre-adoption assessment usually called a home study. The home study and required adoption training thoroughly prepares prospective couples for parenting an adopted child. The home study consists of interviews, various documents and paperwork, background clearances, and a home safety check.

Post-Placement

Post-placement supervision is required by the state of Nevada and all states. It is the period of time between placement of a child with his or her prospective adoptive parents, and the time that the child’s adoption is finalized in court. Nevada regulations require monthly post-placement visits in your home until the finalization of the adoption. The purpose of post-placement supervision is to gather the compulsory information that will be required for the caseworker to prepare written reports to the court. The final report will recommend that the adoption petition be granted and state that finalization will be in the best interest of the child.

The number of post-placement visits required will vary, based on the unique laws of the state whose agency has custody of the child. Should a child be placed from a state other than Nevada, Adoption Choices of Nevada will adhere to the laws of that state and will provide visits and reports at more frequent intervals if you are finalizing in the state of the child’s birth. If you are finalizing in Nevada, you are required to follow Nevada laws which require monthly visits until finalization of the adoption.
