Adoption Expenses


 Why is Adoption so Expensive?

The reason that adoption is so expensive is that several costs are incurred through the adoption process.

Many adoption agencies are not funded through tax dollars (such as foster care) therefore, agencies exist through fees for services which are out of pocket for adoptive families.

Here is an example of how a family could fund an adoption, which can cost anywhere from $8,000 to $40,000 (depending on the type of adoption you pursue). An average adoption can cost around $25,000, but the family may only need to pay $9,000 out-of-pocket expenses.
Example:

Adoption Total Expenses $25,000


   Grants
  1,000


   Loans
10,000


   Fund Raising

Out of Pocket

The Adoption Tax Credit   $13,190 (approximately)
For completed adoptions Individuals qualify for the adoption tax credit when they have adopted a child and paid out-of-pocket expenses related to the adoption.  The amount of the tax credit you qualify for is directly related to how much money you spent on adoption-related expenses.
