Adoption is unlikely to cost very much unless you are involved in a contested adoption and in these circumstances you are very likely to be supported financially by the adoption agency concerned.
Local authority social services adoption work - the home study, assessment and preparation is usually free of charge. If you are asking the local authority to do a home study in order that you can adopt a child from abroad they will often make a charge for this service. You may also need to be placed on a waiting list for a time. If you are required to pay for the home study the costs can mount up to be a very significant sum.
Voluntary adoption agencies depend upon financial contributions from individuals, companies and government to carry out their work.
Although there may not be a charge for their services any contribution from members of the public will usually be most welcome.
