Brooke Randolph, Marriage & Family Therapy, answeredAn international adoption can range from $24-36,000 and can be more if there are complications. The cost of an international adoption includes professional services from attorneys and social workers; document fees with various governmental agencies for filing, review, background checks, visa applications, etc.; travel costs; and some times care of the child. If adoption agencies are quoting much lower costs, they are probably not including an estimation of what you must pay to other agencies.
