Our Promise About Cost

In our 18 years of experience, we’ve never lead our client through the adoption process and ended up charging them any extra fees than what is documented above. 

Our fees are well documented and we’ve never had anything change on anyone whom we’ve served.  No clients of our had ever paid any additional, or unforeseen fees. 

Therefore, we are comfortable to promise that our fees will not change.  What we list above is what you can expect.  100%.

Cost NOT Included in Fees Listed Above 

Our fees above are well documented and you can expect they WILL NOT change.

  • However, you will have other expenses that will likely accumulate to another $8,000 to $10,000. 
  • These include: 
  • Home Study Fees (payable to local home study agency in your state, unless you are in NC). 
  • Airplane Tickets.
  • Cost of staying overseas on your trips.
  • State and federal fees for apostilles and authentications.
  • CIS Fees; Embassy Fees, Mailing Expenses.
  • Other Third Party Fees.

Cost of Adopting Siblings 

Adopting a sibling group of two will not double the cost.  It will increase the cost by approximately $10,500. Most of these will be due as foreign fees.  $500 will be due to IAAME – domestically. 

If you adopt siblings, the tax credit would double to $27,600.

Parents should keep in mind the fees are spread out throughout the entire process and are not due at once.

These adoption fees are due as parents move through the process.  Often times there are several months’ time between when the fees described above are due. 

Financing options can help spread the cost down to a monthly payment. 

In addition, the fees which are due overseas are due only after the parents have accepted their child and are traveling to meet him/her. 

Today's Verse:  -Joshua 1:9-

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go
