How much does an adoption home study cost?
The cost of a home study for adoption varies on a state-by-state basis, and also whether you are doing a domestic, international, or foster adoption. Depending on where you live and what kind of adoption you are pursuing, the home study typically costs between $900 and $3,000.
Typically domestic adoption home studies cost less than home studies for inter-country adoptions. Home study costs for an inter-country adoption tend to be higher since there are more regulations to comply with (and therefore additional administrative costs).
Is it possible to get a free home study for adoption?
While rare for most types of adoption, it is possible to get a free home study for adoption if you are adopting from foster care and elect to use a public agency (for example, the public local department of social service for your county). Depending on your state, you may not have to go with a public agency for your home study if you are adopting from foster care; however, private agencies typically charge a home study fee to help cover administrative costs.
