While adoption is a viable choice for women facing unplanned pregnancies, it is illegal for them to receive financial compensation in exchange for placing the child for adoption.

In the state of Minnesota, adoptive families can cover reasonable pregnancy-related expenses, including healthcare and living expenses for the mother during her pregnancy.

How Much Does an Adoption Cost? 

Making an adoption plan is free to you. Minnesota law requires adoptive families to cover the legal fees of the birthmother as well as any counseling fees acquired up to 6 months after birth.

Additionally, they may assist you with living expenses and pregnancy-related healthcare not covered by your insurance up to 6 weeks after delivery.

Distribution of Adoption Financial Assistance to Birth Mothers in Minnesota

Childbirth and other expenses can quickly add up, which is why Minnesota adoption financial assistance exists for pregnant women who plan on pursuing adoption as their pregnancy solution.

Before any funds are disbursed, the request must be approved by a Minnesota court

The amount of free assistance you might be eligible for involves several factors, such as your threshold income and living situation. Whether or not you have dependents also matters, although the degree of assistance varies from county to county.
