  • Adoption Process
  • Adoption Process: 1. Prequalification - Determining your eligibility as an adoptive applicant is the first step. Do you meet basic requirements for adoption in Nevada? Are there any concerns that would prevent your homestudy from being approved? It is best for everyone involved to address these items up front; you have the peace of mind to know you are in a good position to begin the process, and we know that you are a good candidate for our program. Create a user account by clicking the “Apply Now” link in the Adoption Services section at to create a MyAdoptionPortal account. Please be thorough in all paperwork. Additional supporting items may be required for your background disclosures. 2. Orientation - Orientation offers an introduction to the basic adoption process, an overall introduction to adoption concepts, types of adoption, legalities and more. Presentation of the “family building partnership” offers specific CCSN program information. Attendance at an orientation by each adoptive applicant is required for agency program acceptance. Please Note: You must attend an Orientation session and complete all required documentation on MyAdoptionPortal in order to be prequalified for adoption through Catholic Charities. 3. Homestudy - Application materials are completed online with references, medical exams, law enforcement clearances and other supporting documentation. Individual and joint interviews are conducted during visits to the adoptive family’s home. 4. Prospective Match - A match is made based on several factors: birthparent(s) circumstances and preferences along with adoptive parent’s preferences.

This may occur during a birthmother’s pregnancy or after a child is born. Depending upon the birthparent’s desires, this may include me
