Adoption Waiting Time and Fees

One of the questions you may have concerns the time you will have to wait until a child is placed with you and what the total (bottom line) will be for the adoption fees and costs.

Waiting Times

Your total waiting time from when you complete your first set of paperwork until a child is placed with you depends on many factors. The critical factors usually involve the age, health, and nationality of the child, and the attorney or adoption agency that is assisting you. We created the Waiting timeslink to help you understand the different types of adoption and the waiting times involved.

Determining Adoption Costs

The total expense for a child adoption depends on such factors as the child's age, nationality, ethnicity, whether the child has special needs, the specific adoption agency or adoption attorney you work with, how long you are willing to wait, and what complications arise.
