What are Adoption Agency Fees?

The adoption agency fees will vary greatly depending on the agency. The fees can range anywhere from $1,000 to $35,000. If you are involved in an international or foreign adoption, the cost is typically between $20,000 to $40,000.

If you have an adoption through The State Wide Adoption Network (SWAN) or through a local child protective services agency, you may pay no adoption agency fees at all as it may be subsidized. Once you determine your financial parameters, then you will be able to evaluate different adoption agencies for the one that will best meet your needs.

You need to be a good consumer of adoption agency services also and to do your homework to evaluate the ones you are considering. Your attorney will often be able to assist you in this process and be able to provide you with references to adoption agencies he/she has worked with. Birthparents do not pay the adoption agency fees.
