Adoptive Home Inquiry

Adoptive Home Inquiry

In Arkansas, individuals or couples who are interested in adopting a child must complete an adoptive home inquiry, which is also known as a home study.

The adoptive home inquiry is a process that evaluates the prospective adoptive parents to determine if they are suitable to provide a safe and stable home for a child. The inquiry is conducted by a licensed adoption agency or the Arkansas Department of Human Service’s Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
