Legal Fees and Costs of Relative Adoption in Florida

Unlike a typical adoption proceeding, the adopting relative can directly file for adoption without first terminating parental rights. This results in one proceeding thus reducing attorney time and legal costs. Many birth parents are willing to consent to a relative adoption and eliminate their child support obligation. When a parent consents, the cost of the Florida adoption is significantly reduced. As with any legal proceeding, there can be issues that increase the cost but generally relative adoptions are straight forward.

Relative adoptions in Florida can qualify for the Federal Adoption Tax Credit which can greatly reduced the expense of adopting a relative in Florida.
