A home study in Utah is a screening of the household and of the lives of prospective adoptive parents and family members prior to an adoption taking place. A home study is required by Utah law. The study can also aid the prospective parents in preparing to raise an adopted child.  It can also help to make families aware of the issues surrounding adoption and raising a child.  The ultimate purpose of the study is to benefit the child and to encourage that the best interests of the child are represented.

Information: If you would like to adopt in Utah, the type of information that will be sought for your study includes the the family background.  We will consider the living circumstances, employment history a criminal background check of the prospective parents, medical background, adoption documentation and an examination of the home.

Our purpose at Southern Utah Adoption is to find the strengths and benefits you offer to a perspective adoptive child not to look for problems in your home or family.  A home study, as its name implies, examines the dwelling of the prospective parents. Some factors that are taken into account include the cleanliness and condition of the home, safety, sanitation, and the neighborhood where the home is located.  Factors pertaining to the individual family members includes their desire to adopt, their understanding of the relationship between adoptive parents and children, and their openness to addressing the unique issues associated with adoption.  If there are any concerns or issues to be resolved, we will be specific and clear as to what would need to happen to qualify and receive an approved home study.  We cover Washington County, Kane County, San Juan County, Garfield County, Iron County, Beaver County, Piute County, Wayne County, Sevier County, Emery County, Grand County Millard County, Sanpete County and other Southern Utah Counties.

Some people may hesitate and feel that a home study can be intrusive, or who feel that there may be discrimination against certain people who seem capable of parenting, but are ruled out due to various issues. Our professionals will help you through these issues and help to put you at ease. We hope that the miracle of adoption can come to bless and to help prosper your family in wonderful ways.
