Pregnancy and childbirth are very costly, so many women who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant worry about finances. A lack of financial stability may be one of the reasons you’re considering adoption in Colorado.
Many pregnant women have worried, “Does it cost to give a child up for adoption in Colorado? How much is it to put a baby up for adoption?” The answer: it is 100 percent free to place a child for adoption in Colorado.
Some women may be struggling to financially support themselves or older children that they’re raising, so they ask, “Do you get paid for putting a baby up for adoption in Colorado?” The answer: payment in exchange for placing a child for adoption is illegal. There are no Colorado adoption agencies that pay you to place a child for adoption.

As we said before, all adoption-related expenses are taken care of for you, including health care, emotional and legal counsel. But you may also be eligible for Colorado adoption financial assistance. The amount of financial assistance you may qualify for depends on a number of variables, including:

Birth parent living expense limitations set by the state of Colorado, which may vary by county
Even if you’re medically insured, pregnancy and childbirth is expensive, and it can be difficult to work consistently throughout your pregnancy. Colorado adoption living expenses help offset these pregnancy-related financial burdens.
Any requested adoption financial assistance must be deemed reasonable and necessary by a Colorado court.
Remember, adoption is free for those who are placing a child for adoption in Colorado. You may also be eligible for Colorado birth parent expenses to help with financial responsibilities during your pregnancy.
