February 5, 2010, Newsletter Issue #177: Financial Assistance For Birth Mother

Tip of the Week

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