Legal Fees for Adopting from the Florida State System | DCF

Typically, there are no legal fees for the adoptive families adopting through the Florida State system as these fees are covered by the adoption subsidy. The adoption subsidy can also include a monthly maintenance subsidy, Medicaid until the child is 18 and a college tuition voucher (fours years of higher education—college, community college, trade school—at any public school in Florida).

There is a chance these Florida State adoptions can also qualify for the Federal Adoption Tax Credit. Expenses paid to adopt a child who qualifies for the tax credit For more information visit our Resource Page or
