About Adoptions in Idaho

There are many different types of adoption, several of which include parental placement adoptions, stepparent adoptions, agency adoptions, interstate adoptions, and international adoptions. Our attorneys can explain and assist you with all types of adoptions during a free consultation. In this state, any adult is eligible to adopt a child as long as they are at least 15 years older than the adoptee or if they are 25 years old, and have not committed certain criminal offenses.

Families trying for domestic or international adoptions need to first complete an adoption home study and be approved for adoption. A home study is a written assessment of a family’s ability to care for an adopted child. These types of studies can be conducted by Certified Adoption Professionals, licensed private adoption agencies, or the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. By reading a family’s home study, a child’s social worker will be able to get a read on the family and determine if they are a good fit for the child.
