Domestic Home Study Services

Domestic Home Study Only Program

All families seeking to adopt are first required to obtain a Home Study from an Illinois licensed child welfare agency. In our Domestic Home Study Only Program, families work with ACI to complete a Home Study, then register with other agencies for the placement process. 

ACI’s all-inclusive Phase I fee includes the following: 

  • Initial Application Interview 
  • Orientation 
  • Home Study 
  • Adoption Education/Training 
  • Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children (ICPC) 
  • Up to five post-placement/adoption reports for one child 
  • Court report if required for an adoption finalization 

The first step for all programs is submitting an ACI Application with the Program Phase I fee. Please visit our Program Fees and Documents Page to view detailed fees for each specific program. 

Please call 773.334.2300 if you have specific questions about our Domestic Home Study Services program. We would be happy to speak with you.
