  IN-COUNTRY ADOPTION
  There are several stages in in-country adoption, which is as follows:

Stage I Stage II
  • A home study report of the prospective adoptive parents will be prepared by the social worker of the Agency. To allay the fears and apprehensions of the prospective adoptive parent(s), pre-adoptive counseling sessions will be undertaken by the social worker during the preparation of the home study report. Assessing the ability of a couple to parent a child not born to them is of crucial importance in a successful adoption. Therefore, their suitability to care for an unrelated child is assessed through this home study and counseling. Documents relating to the financial and health status of the prospective parent(s) will be part of the Home Study Report.
  • In case of Inter-State adoption applications by parent(s), they will be accompanied by Home Study prepared by a qualified social worker working in a RIPA/LAPA. Where State Govt.’s have officially delegated such work for its Officials, the Home Study Report could be prepared by the concerned Official.
  • Criteria for eligibility of parent(s) will be adhered to, as stated in Para 1.1.7.
  • The Agency will make a suitable reference from amongst the admitted children legally free for adoption. If no suitable child is available, the family will be referred to the ACA.
 
 
 
 
Stage III
  • After a Home Study has been accepted and approved, a child will be shown to the parent(s). The agency will take care to match a child meeting the description, if any, desired by the parent(s).
  • In case of placement of older children (above the age of 6), both written and verbal consent of the child will be obtained.
Stage IV
Once a successful matching has been done, the agency will file a petition in the Court/JJB for obtaining the necessary orders under the relevant Act. The above process will normally be completed in 6-8 weeks.
