Detailed Cost Analysis (updated as of 1/2/2014) for China adoption agencies found at this LINK.
** Tax footnote - check here to see if you can use the adoption tax credit.
Takeaway message - if you find your kiddo on the shared list, go with CAWLI and save yourself a boatload of $$!!
Caveat -- I tried to make these apple to apple comparison, meaning I generically put the following costs for all agencies. Obviously these costs will vary depending on your Homestudy agency, when you travel, etc.
- $2200 as the HS costs
- $870 for USCIS
- $6600 for in country fees (SWI Donation + Provincial fees)
- $7,000 for travel (2 parents at 3500 pp).
- I did not include actual costs for post placements but did include post placement retainers. I also included fees related to post placement mgmt. (some agencies have them, others do not).
