The term dossier refers to the group of documents requested by the child’s country in order for you to apply to adopt. The home study is one of the many pieces that are in the dossier.
As every country is different, it is important to know what country you are applying to as soon as you can. It will make a difference in what unique areas of discussion the worker must include in the home study, and what specific documentation they want to see from your family.
A very detailed dossier preparation package will be sent once you are registered with CAFAC. This package will assist you in preparing all the required documentation that will become part of the completed dossier.
