Costs Associated with Adoption
Typically, there is no fee for families interested in adopting a child or sibling group from foster care. Licensed public adoption agencies may require that you pay a fee of no more than $500. This fee may be deferred, reduced, or waived under certain conditions.
You should expect to incur some minimal costs during the process, such as: fingerprinting, medical examinations, court filing, CPR classes, etc. These requirements are usually no more than $100 to $300 in total, and some of these expenses may be reimbursable after the adoption is finalized.
