Home Study Addendum/Update

When is a home study update/addendum needed? An update is necessary if you have changed jobs, moved to a new home in the same state, if there is a new member is living in the home, or if you have decided to change adoption programs. If you have moved to another state you will be required to have a new home study completed. Home studies are only valid in the state in which they were completed.
$300

Home Study Re-Certification Report

Home studies are only valid for a particular length of time depending on the state it was completed in. This does not mean that you have to go through the entire home study process again; it simply means that the home study must be updated after this time has passed. There will be at least one visit in your home with a social worker, and you will be asked to submit current documentation—including background checks and CPS clearances. If you have moved to another state, you will be required to have a new home study completed. Home studies are only valid in the state in which they were completed.
