Do I get paid for adoption?

Financial Assistance When Looking for Adoption Help


As a pregnant woman considering adoption help in Arizona you may ask, “Do I get paid for adoption?” While you don’t get paid for placing your child for adoption, you might be entitled to receive financial support to cover your pregnancy-related expenses.

If you believe that adoption is your best plan and you are committed to an adoption plan, as a licensed Arizona adoption agency, Adoption Choices of Arizona can offer financial help with some pregnancy-related expenses. Financial assistance will be determined by your individual needs and the amount allowed by the state of Arizona.



Can I receive financial assistance for adoption?


Every state has unique laws, but yes, in Arizona, adoptive parents are able to provide financial assistance during your pregnancy. Your Adoption Counselor will work with you to determine expenses. Living expenses may include:

  • Rent and Utilities or Safe Housing (which is usually provided later in pregnancy)
  • Food and Groceries
  • Transportation
  • Maternity Clothing
  • Phone services
  • And more like supportive counseling and guidance

Adoption Choices of Arizona and our adoptive families understand that you may need help with money during the adoption process and that it may be difficult for you to work, live in your current environment, or care for your family while you are pregnant, especially if your family, friends or community are not supportive of your pregnancy or adoption decision.

Your Adoption Counselor will work with you to learn more about your individual situation and financial needs.


How much financial support can I get?


Financial assistance for adoption varies by living situation and stage of pregnancy.
For example, if a woman is still in high school and living with her parents, she might not need as much support for living expenses as a woman who is in her 20’s or 30’s, lives on her own, and supports herself and her children.

We understand that your living situation and needs may change throughout your pregnancy as well. For instance, you may have the support of your family or boyfriend, but if you lose that support or seek a new living situation, your living expenses may become greater.

The bottom line is your budget will be discussed based on your individual circumstance with your adoption professionals.


When will money or support be available?


Once your Adoption Counselor has a better understanding of your situation and financial needs during your pregnancy, she/he will work as quickly as possible to get you financial assistance. You will also be eligible to receive financial assistance for six weeks after delivery.
