  • I think that depends on state. Not to mention the complications. Does the bio-father agree? If not, you have to do quite a bit before anything else can happen. I think, in AL, my friends paid about $500 for the official paperwork, per kid, but there was alot more involved. In the end it came out to a lot more. Plus lawyer fees. Yeah, it gets up there.

  • So he would have no issue signing over his rights then. Which would make it easier I would think. My friends were working on an abandonment case, so it took them 6 months of weekly newspaper notifications in every area that the bio-parents could have lived and then court cases to prove no contact etc. So it added up. I imagine if there are no issues it shouldn't cost anywhere near what it cost them.
