South Tampa, FL Attorney With Extensive Experience With Overseas Adoptions

Our firm has helped clients adopt children from countries around the world, including India, China, Pakistan and many others. The rules for adopting a child can vary greatly from one country to another. We make it our business to know the unique policies of each country so that we can effectively manage your case from beginning to end.

Understanding Home Studies

Some of the most frequent questions our attorneys get from adoption clients have to do with home studies. The home study is used to create a profile of your family, parenting style, financial stability and the living environment that would be provided for the child. In most cases, the home study is less about your fitness as a prospective parent than it is about whether the child would be a good fit for your family.

We will advise you on how to best prepare for your home study, what the social worker might be looking for during the home study, the consideration that is given to cultural differences between you and the child you wish to adopt, and other issues.
