Intercountry Adoption - Savings

Report content

Hi, currently we are at Home Study for Intercountry Adoption.

What savings are we expected to have in place for going to the Adoption Panel??

I doubt there is a fixed levels of savings you will need, but you will need to be able to show how you will finance the process and the subsequent adoption. Things like:

- assessment and adoption fees (I believe you have to pay these if its an intercountry adoption - no idea of the levels)

- travel and expenses whilst abroad (I believe many countries expect you to stay in the country for a period of time and you may need multiple visits)

- adoption leave

- normal costs of raising a child/ren

- potential of reduced income longer term (because higher chance of child/ren needing more input from parents)

Hope that helps and good luck
