How expensive is an international adoption?
International adoptions tend to run from about twelve or fifteen thousand to about thirty. But the cost usually includes agency fees, travel expenses and CIS (formerly called the INS) fees, as well as the fees required by the country from which you are adopting.
In most cases, the money is paid in increments as you go through the adoption process rather than all at one time in a lump sum.
Check with your accountant or the IRS, because adoptive parents may be eligible for a tax credit of over ten thousand dollars.
For Canadian readers, the average cost of an international adoption is about Can$20,000, including travel cost for two adults. But it's only a rough average, and varies up and down depending on the country and the number of trips needed, number of people travelling, services provided, dollar exchange rate, etc.
Two fees are a major part of your cost: the agency fee in Canada, and the foreign fee.
• Agency fee. You would generally pay half at the start and half on completing the adoption. The parts of the fee relating to time spent providing services would not be refundable.
• Foreign fee. Typically, you pay half when the match is made and half when the adoption is complete. This covers the foreign lawyer or agency's fee for translation, legal work, foster care, medical care and disbursements.
Then there are your expenses in Canada and abroad, such as air fare, hotel and meals.
A survey of the cost quoted in 2005 by Canadian adoption agencies showed that the range of costs for 25 countries is $10,000 to $35,000.

Cost of International Adoptions . International adoptions tend to run from about twelve or fifteen thousand to about thirty or forty.
After having spent many months researching adoption, I have learned that the cost of an adoption depends on several factors. The costs can range from next to nothing to tens of thousands of dollars First is the type of adoption: private adoption, special needs adoption, intercountry adoption, etc. S…pecial needs adoptions are often the least expensive because most states offer adoption subsidies. The Federal government might also offer special subsidies. Domestic adoptions are not necessarily less expensive than International adoptions though it may seem to be the logical conclusion. International adoption fees and costs vary widely depending on country, agency and travel requirements. With private adoptions, you may end up paying for prenatal care, as well as the costs of the mother's hospital stay and related expenses. So to answer the question: there really is no definitive answer to such a general question. Domestic adoption through foster care has few, if any, costs attached. In fact, foster adoption may come with some financial support for the child, including medical coverage. (MORE)
Answer . The least expensive way is to be sure that the mother is willing to give the baby to you for adoption. I don't know what the circumstances are or how young the mother is, but really think of this one. There are many things to consider:\n. \nJust because the mother may be young she is …still old enough to have a baby, and although she may not get the gigantic proportion of carrying a baby inside of her now, once she gives birth there will be a strong bond there. To pressure the mother at this point is cruel and taking advantage of someone in a bad situation.\n. \nIf you are all in agreement about the adoption just when do you think you will let your nephew (now your son) in on the secret? Most people blurt out, "Well, as soon as they are 18." I've seen some pretty angry 18 year olds and 20 - 40 year olds when they find that their parents could never bring themselves to tell them and then eventually they find out (and they will) they aren't their parents at all, but the sister of their mother that came around constantly and one the child had been calling an aunt. How messed up is that? Even typing this makes my head whirl. There are a lot of feelings going on here and all of you have to take it slow and easy.\n. \nIf the mother doesn't want the baby and is sure of it, then you are still going to have to go to a lawyer to sign all the papers. You can shop around for prices re lawyers like anything else. Whatever you do, don't sign just a piece of paper you have drawn up between the mother and you (won't stand up in a court of law) or have a good old hand shake on the deal.\n. \nRemember, this unborn child is a person and that little person has no say in what is going on, so the mother and yourselves have to think long and hard about this one. You are shaping the life of another human being. (MORE)
It won't be nearly a expensive as adopting a child from an agency or a foreign country. But you should find a lawyer who deals with this and have the appropriate paperwork drawn up to make it legal. The best way to find a good, reasonably priced lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask around to people who h…ave done this. OR try the yellow pages for lawyers who make adoptions legal and permenent. Call a few different ones, give them the bare-bones facts and choose one that you feel comfortable with and fits your budget. ! (MORE)
\n. \n Answer \n. \nYes, it is pretty expensive. Normally both parties pay the price of the call. Ask your cell network for the rates while 'roaming'.\n. \nBut it depends on the country and carrier. In Australia there is no charge to the called party for incoming calls. This is because you c…an't be charged for things you don't originate or have control over. Therefore, you can be called from anywhere in the world without charge. If you take your Australian cell phone to another country - then you start to incur international roaming which will cost.

Answer . If you go through the Department of children and families, they help with the expenses. In Iowa I know all that you pay is time to register to be an adoptive parent by going to classes, background check, and home study. Then when a child or children are found and you think it is a match yo…u wish to make permanent, they will help you adopt the child(s) what ever it takes. My suggestion for you being an adoptive parent, is to become a foster parent too. There is no extra classes, but in you at least get to have the child in the home to see if they are a fit for your family. We had about 20 foster children and we adopted the last 2 children that was placed in our home. There was a few we thought was a fit, and turned out to be just to much for our family. (MORE)
If you are mistreated or abandoned you have to report to the police or social worker. To get adopted as a teen is very difficult unless you know someone, a relative or someone else and then foster home is usually the start. Foster homes are more common. If it works the discussion about adoption can …come up. The social worker has as a job to sort out the living situations and remove you from biological family if necessary. They can help with a adoption agency etc. Adoption is final and you don't have contact with the biological family again unless the adoptive parents allow you to. Finally a judge decides if they can adopt you or not after listening to the social worker. (MORE)

I'm guessing its because they don't want children to be adopted and then abused. So its expensive because only people who actually want to adopt a child will spend the money.

In order to keep international adoptions safe and legal for children, there needs to be lots of oversight from both governments: where the child comes from, and where the adoptive parents live. This oversight is expensive, and the burden for that falls on the adoptive parents. The cost for this over…sight helps to ensure that children are not sold or stolen, although this still happens in many parts of the world. US adoption of children in the foster system is not expensive, and in some states, your costs for adoption are covered by the child welfare system.
