Rialto Home Study Providers
Anyone who wishes to adopt a child must first complete the home study process before they’re cleared to continue. This important pre-adoptive step assesses the family’s readiness to welcome a child through adoption, including their physical, financial, mental and emotional preparedness. This is meant to ensure that children are placed into loving, safe and ready homes.

This hearing is short and simple — the judge issues the final decree of adoption, and the last legal step of the process is complete.
