The short answer is, “Yes and No.” Short, but not helpful, right?
Yes, birth mothers can receive financial help from the adoptive parents as an act of charity, when that financial help is part of maternity-connected necessary medical and living expenses. What does that mean?
Well, it’s really all up to the judge, who has to approve any payments from the adoptive parents to the birth parents.
At The Adoption Law Firm, we connect you with adoptive parents who match your preferences. You are making the best parenting decision you can for your child – you deserve to get the best pool of adoptive parents as possible to chose from.
No, you can’t be paid in exchange for your child. It would be terrible to live in a world that put those kinds of pressures on birth parents. It’s highly important for birth parents to be on the look out for agencies or attorneys who are trying to manipulate or trick birth parents in to making adoption placements that they really don’t need/want to make.
Birth parents deserve excellent legal representation in an adoption plan. That’s what I try to provide with The Adoption Law Firm.
