Can You Get Paid for Adoption-Related Expenses in Texas?

How Adoption is Free for Birth Mothers in Texas

For many pregnant women considering adoption in Texas, financial concerns may be one of the reasons why they’re choosing adoption for their child. They worry, “Does it cost to give a child up for adoption in Texas? How much is it to put a baby up for adoption? Can I afford it?”

If you’re wondering that same question: don’t worry. It’s 100 percent free to place a child for adoption in Texas.

Because limited finances are one of the reasons why many women feel unable to parent their child in Texas, you may have also wondered, “Do you get paid for putting a baby up for adoption in Texas?”

Payment for the placement of a child into an adoption is illegal. There are no adoption agencies that pay you in exchange for placing your child.

But most expectant mothers receive birth mother living expenses, which cover the cost of pregnancy and birth and more.

How to Get Paid for Adoption Expenses in Texas

Pregnancy and childbirth are costly. Through American Adoptions, all pregnancy and adoption expenses are taken care of for you. This typically includes:

  • Maternity clothes

  • Childcare

  • Prenatal care

  • Medical care throughout your pregnancy

  • Transportation

  • Phone services

  • Rent and utilities

  • Groceries

  • And more

Free services provided for birth mothers in Texas through American Adoptions also include:

  • Medical care

  • Legal representation

  • Counseling services before, during, and after the adoption, whenever you might need it

  • Living expenses based on your financial need and Texas adoption law

These free adoption services and additional living expenses are provided so that you can put financial concerns out of your mind while you’re pregnant, creating an adoption plan, choosing adoptive parents and trying to go about your life. We know that pregnancy is emotionally, mentally, physically and financially difficult. No one should have to go through it alone.

How Much Adoption Financial Assistance You Can Receive in TX

All of the essentials, such as legal, medical and counseling services, are always free for women considering adoption in Texas with American Adoptions. Additional adoption financial assistance for pregnancy and adoption-related living expenses is determined by:

  • Your living situation, including any dependents

  • Your income situation during your pregnancy

  • Living expense limitations dictated by Texas adoption law, which may vary by county

Pregnancy makes it difficult to work, and the financial costs of being pregnant and giving birth are expensive, even for those who have insurance. Texas adoption living expenses are there to take away some of the financial burden for expectant mothers during an already stressful time. This allows you to focus on your health and wellbeing instead of the bills.

All financial assistance for adoption-related expenses must be approved by the Texas court. Your adoption specialist will assess your financial need, and the court will approve any costs that they consider to be necessary and within reason.

Adoption is 100 percent free. Additionally, you can receive pregnancy- and birth-related expenses so that money doesn’t have to be on your mind while you’re creating your baby’s adoption plan to benefit their future.
