California Adoption Facilitators:

 

 

 

California adoption facilitators are regulated by the California Department of Social Services.  Their responsibilities, while obviously very important, are nonetheless very narrow in scope.

A California adoption facilitator does one thing and one thing only:

As an independent agent (adoption facilitators are not an adoption agency) they arrange the meeting of prospective adoptive parent(s) with the birth parent(s).

Beyond that, their responsibilities are over.  They are required to inform all parties that they are not an adoption agency.  Any other duties are handled by the adopting parties and the birth parent parties.  They may also be performed by any retained attorneys, or a public or private adoption agency, but not the adoption facilitator.

 

 

 

What California Adoption Facilitators may not do:

 

 

 

According to the California Department of Social Services website, a California adoption facilitator is prohibited from the doing the following:

  • They may not, even momentarily, take custody of the child being placed for adoption;
  • They may not imply in any way that they are an adoption agency;
  • They may not list photos of children on a website or by any means as available for adoption;
  • They may not advertise children as being available for adoption

 

 

The California Adoption Facilitator Bond:

 

 

 

The California Department of Social Services requires adoption facilitators to post a surety bond in the amount of $25,000 with its office.

A surety bond does not protect the adoption facilitator; rather, it protects the public against wrong or negligently harmful or illegal acts by an adoption facilitator (including the prohibitions listed above).

 

 

 

Getting your California Adoption Facilitator Surety Bond:

 

 

 

While the surety bond amount for a California adoption facilitator bond is $25,000, you of course will only pay a fraction of that amount.

The amount that you pay for your bond (this is known as the premium) will be determined by your credit score.

Once the surety bond has been issued to you, AmeriPro Surety Bonds will immediately send the bond to you for filing with the California Department of Social Services.
