November 30, 2007, Newsletter Issue #126: Financial Assistance by Adopting Parents

Tip of the Week

In most states, the adoptive parents can legally only pay for a birthmother's medical and legal expenses. Some states allow parents to assist the birthmother with housing or pregnancy costs such as groceries or maternity clothes. All birthmother expenses must be carefully documented and shown to the court processing the adoption. No states allow adopting parents to make any payments that may be viewed as a reward for placing her child for adoption.
