How to Start An Adoption Agency
I am a resident in the state of Maryland and am interested in starting an adoption agency. I am not a lawyer; however I have adopted three children. Anyone with any information please provide information. I am eager to get started.
You would contact the local department of jobs and family services.
It took us 7 months after we even read the info and submitted the policies. We were not allowed to work in the field until approval, a social worker is on stafff, I am getting a PhD in Counseling and have one course left before sitting for the PC (Professional Counselor exam)
Prior to submission of policies, we had help writing them, had an atty. review them, and they still were not what the state was asking for!
It is not an easy thing, and now with the Hague they are tightening up. I have heard they may require a masters level person in a related field, among other requirements.

If you would like to talk more, contact me:

How to start an Adoption Agency
I have started an Adoption Agency already with the full gamut of services.

People who are Adoptive Parents can legally help people in the Adoption process as Individuals. There is an Adoptive Mom who is doing this very successfully in Ukraine Adoptions! You have to Market though that you are not Licensed to do Home Studies.

To have a Agency you need to be Licensed for Foster Care/Adoption, or Domestic Adoption or International Adoption by your State Licensing Department of Social Services. In California it is an State Adoption Board!

The State Licensing regulations and there are tons more of them than just where the Masters of Social Work requirement comes in.
international adoptions
Let me know if you could start to help couples to adopt their dream.
