How Much Does it Cost to Adopt?

How much does infant adoption cost?

Domestic infant adoption cost depends on several things like where you live, the professionals who help you (whether you work with a private agency, public agency or attorney), and what happens during the matching process that can contribute to your overall expenses. Most private infant adoptions cost between $20,000-$50,000 in the United States. At Adoptions Together, we use a sliding scale placement fee that is based on your income to make adoption more accessible to clients from a broad range of backgrounds. Our placement fees range from $16,800-$34,650. Learn more about the cost of adoption here.
