You still have to pay the lawyer's fees, which is about $15,000 - $16,000, out of a total agency amount of about $18,000 - $19,500. This is why the older children in Guatemala get overlooked, because families would rather adopt an infant for that fee, rather then paying that amount for an older child.

The agency needs to give the money to the lawyer they work with at least half of his or her fees, so they can begin working on your adoption case in Guatemala. This makes sense, because no one here or in Guatemala will do legal work on your behalf without getting paid for their services.I wish the fees were a little less, or at least reduced for older children or siblings.

Adoption Partners also reduces our fee substantially to assist those families adopting an older child. Feel free to contact us regarding some wonderful healthy children that are waiting for a loving home!
