Homestudy Services

We can provide homestudies for:

  • Families adopting domestically through Holt's Illinois and Wisconsin branch
  • Families adopting internationally through Holt International
  • Families adopting through another agency
  • Families adopting an embryo through another agency

The homestudy is a key piece of your adoption process. Before Holt can match you with a child, a social worker in your state needs to prepare this written report about your family. After your child comes home, you're in the home stretch, but you still have one final requirement. The last step in the process is a series of reports detailing how your child is adjusting to your family, also completed by a local social worker.


See homestudy fees within our domestic, international or interstate adoption fee sheets here.
