International Adoption

We have a wide range of experience conducting home studies for Florida families who have adopted from Jamaica, Ukraine, Ethiopia, China, Uganda, Poland and many other countries throughout the world.

With the implementation of the Universal Accreditation Act of 2012, all families must use a Hague accredited primary provider to assist and monitor the placement of a child from any other country, including Hague countries, non-Hague countries or even for relative adoptions from another country. The Unites States government no longer recognizes independent adoptions from another country.

All international home studies must now be completed by licensed agencies and completed with Hague standards. We are a Hague exempt agency since we do not place children for adoption internationally. All international home studies must meet stringent Hague requirements, and we are highly trained and experienced at writing Hague home studies.

We will work closely with your Hague Accredited Primary Provider to make sure you are able to bring your child home as quickly and as smoothly as possible. If you do not have a Hague Accredited adoption agency, we can recommend agencies for you to interview.

We can complete most international (Hague) home studies in 30 to 45 days.
