Are you a birth mother looking to place your baby for adoption? Are you concerned about finances during such a difficult and vulnerable time while making this decision? Adoption Choices of Nevada is here to help you and your baby.

We know you might be concerned about whether or not you have to pay for adoption in Nevada. You do not need to pay us anything. However, you will not be getting paid either. Money should not be the sole reason to give your baby up for adoption. 

About Compensation from Adoption in Nevada

It is illegal to give children up to adoption agencies for money and with no intention of pursuing adoption. It could be considered trafficking and has serious consequences. There are birth mothers out there who do not have their baby’s best interest at heart. If they are only in it for the money, then they will not care about anything else except personal needs.

Each state, including Nevada, has its own laws regarding compensation for birth mothers. Nevada does allow adoption financial assistance in some areas.

Adoption attorneys may not accept payment for matching pregnant birth mothers with adoptive parents. But they may receive compensation for any legal services in an adoption. Also, if an adoption professional doesn’t have a license, they may not accept any financial value for helping in an adoption.

Thanks to the law of Nevada, Adoption Choices of Nevada allows for appropriate and reasonable expenses during your pregnancy and postpartum recovery. We offer a Birth Parent Counselor to help you develop a budget to cover the approved expenses to assist you through everything.

The things we can help pay for during your pregnancy are the following. Rent, utilities, phone bills, basic home needs, transportation, laundry, maternity clothing, and legal fees. In Nevada, adoptive parents can also pay for your medical and living expenses during pregnancy.

If you want counseling at any point during the adoption journey, you will receive free sessions through us. We want to provide you with the best emotional support possible. We also want to make sure that you fully understand the weight of your choice before getting too far in the adoption process. We believe that counseling offers a huge benefit.

There is also the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program and Medicaid. They provide financial assistance to pregnant women, mothers with infants, and small children.

More Things to Consider When Choosing Nevada Adoption

We know that compensation for birth mothers is crucial during the adoption process. We still want to do everything we can to help you. However, how much adoption financial assistance you receive depends on your home state, living situation, and current stage of pregnancy.

Financial assistance for adoption is regulated in court. They decide how much compensation you can receive. 

Let us go back to potential financial assistance for basic needs such as housing. If your living situation is unstable, there are several alternative options. You can either be relocated to an apartment or live in a maternity home.

If you relocate to a new apartment, we will provide help to set it up. So you would not have to worry about leaving your current community, school, job, or support system.

Maternity homes are usually onsite at an adoption agency, and your room would be covered. It may have certain requirements for your schedule, education, diet, curfew, and more.

If you choose adoption, the last thing we want you to worry about is financial stress. We hope that our many services of financial assistance can ease the burden in many ways.

Adoption Choices of Nevada will cover the costs of your adoption, pregnancy-related expenses, and medical, legal, and counseling services. Though you will not get money from adoption the way you are thinking of, you will still receive compensation through our financial assistance.

We know that finding everything you need during the adoption process can be overwhelming. The journey of choosing adoption in itself is not easy, and it comes with many obstacles. 

At Adoption Choices of Nevada, we make you and your baby our top priorities. You do not have to go through this alone. We will do everything we can to make sure you are receiving the financial assistance you need during your pregnancy.
