HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ADOPT A CHILD AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Generally, there are no or very small charges for adoption services for special needs children in foster care who are available for adoption and who are wards of the state of Florida. The small charges would be the cost of finalizing the adoption, even these costs are sometimes provided free through attorneys pro bono.
However, there are fees for non-special needs children or private adoptions. The local community based care lead or provider agency can discuss this further with you.
