Does Putting A Child Up for Adoption Cost Money in the U.S.?

If you partner with an adoption agency in the United States, placing a child for adoption as a birth parent will not cost you anything. In fact, you’ll have some services associated with pregnancy covered by the organization (doctor visits, medical bills, attorney fees). Each state sets forth “legally allowable expenses”, where Friends in Adoption and the state can provide further financial assistance. Areas of financial assistance include medical costs, housing, and other pregnancy related expenses. However, if you are looking to work outside of an agency or complete an identified adoption, you will need to plan/budget for medical fees, legal services, and more.
