Yes. Home studies are required on all adoptions, with the exception of Adult Adoptions and Foreign Adoptions. Foreign Adoptions that have been completed in another country do not require a home study to be recognized and have an Ohio Birth Certificate prepared.
The filing fee for an adoption is $183.00. If the Court’s Assessors are performing the home study for the adoption, an additional $750.00, plus $50.00 for each additional child will be due.
