Since the passage of Senate Bill 172, completion of an Adoption Home Study is necessary for all prospective adoptive families prior to a child being placed in their home.
Licensed adoption agencies in GA have historically completed adoptive home studies for families going through the agency adoption process and thus, have the experience and skill for doing home studies to prepare families for adoption and gather information to make sure these families are appropriate and safe families for children.
GALAA member agencies are all licensed child placing adoption agencies and can provide home study services for families. Prospective adoptive families can call any of the listed agencies to find out if they provide home study services and the fees that are connected to these services.
Please refer to these three pages that provide information on GALAA members who are conducting these Home Studies for services and fees involved.
