June 9, 2006, Newsletter Issue #53: International Adoption Fees

Tip of the Week

International adoption fees can vary depending on the country the adopting parents choose to work with. International adoptions can cost between $7,000 and $35,000. International adoptions require a number of fees including application, homestudy (unless already completed through another agency), dossier, adoption program and post placement fees. International adoption fees will also cover translations and legal fees. There may also be additional country fees depending upon the country the parents select.

Some countries require that the parents make a donation to the child’s orphanage upon the adoption of their child. This type of donation should be approximately $3,000 - $4,000. Adopting parents will also have to pay to travel to the country their child is from. Since travel plans are often last minute, parents should not expect to get bargain airfare rates. Additionally, parents must research the adoption process for the country they are adopting from since some countries require parents to make more than one trip.
