Home Adoption Studies, Inc. is licensed in the State of Georgia as a 501c3 non-profit child placing agency.

Q: What is the difference between a Home Study Agency and a Child Placing Agency, and do I need both?
A: While we are a child placing agency; however, there are several reasons why families use separate home study and child placing agencies:
- If the child-placing agency is out of state, you need an agency licensed in Georgia to prepare your home study.
- Having a home study prepared by an independent agency ensures that you have the option of working with whatever child-placing agency or agencies you choose. You are not tied to using the agency that prepared your home study, for your actual adoption.
- As in many other professional fields, it is always a good idea to have important work done by "specialists" - those with intensive experience and training in one particular area.
- Your placing agency may not offer home study services or may not offer them in your area.
- Your agency may not relinquish your full ICPC packet needed in order to place outside of Georgia or outside of their agency, or they may charge an additional fee to do so.
