Today I want to share with you all some tips for how to successfully prepare for your home study. We know home visits can be kind of nerve wrecking and overwhelming, even if there’s nothing for you to worry about. So here are some tips to help you become more confident and prepared during your home study. One of the first steps of the ,North Carolina home study process is to start gathering the required documentation.

  • Demographic information, including your age, nationality, race, ethnicity and religion
  • Information about your current marital and family status, as well as family and marital history
  • An assessment of your physical and mental health, including any past history of drug or alcohol addiction
  • Education and employment history information
  • Current financial information, including information about your property and income
  • Your reasons for adopting
  • Any information about previous domestic violence proceedings or proceedings concerning child abuse, neglect or abandonment
  • Information about any convictions of crimes other than minor traffic violations
  • The quality of your home environment and an assessment of any other children in the household
