Getting Started

Four easy steps to get started

  • Request our free information packet by calling 866-586-5656 (or fill out our on-line request). Our pre-adoption consultants will answer any general adoption questions you may have and advise you on specific adoption criteria.
  •  Register for an EAC adoption seminar.  If there is not one scheduled near you, we offer webinars and phone seminars.
  • Complete the on-line application and submit it with the initial fee.
  • Upon approval of your application, you will be sent EAC’s International Adoption Services Agreement.

What happens next?

You will be assigned a personal consultant who will assist you with the paperwork process of adoption, including country specific dossier documents and USCIS filing.

All prospective parents must have a home study done in their state of residence, completed by a licensed social worker or by a representative from a licensed agency.  EAC is able to provide prospective parents with the names of home study agencies which other EAC families have successfully worked with.  

The home study process usually takes 6 – 8 weeks, depending on the time it takes to gather the necessary documentation (e.g., references, clearances, etc.). 

It is best to discuss your choice of a home study agency with your personal EAC consultant prior to make making a commitment.
