IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

FOR ALL INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS WHO HAVE NOT YET APPLIED BUT HAVE RECEIVED AN INQUIRY PACKAGE

 

Due to a new fee imposed on all agencies providing international Primary Provider services for adoptions, by the new Hague accrediting agency, IAAME, all applications received in our office after February 14, 2018 will be required to pay an additional fee of $500. at the time of application.  No application for any international adoption will be accepted until this fee is paid. These required fees are paid by Family Connections to IAAME for monitoring and oversite of all international adoptions and are due to be paid to IAAME at the time you apply.  These fees were announced and approved by the US State Department which means that the fees are regulatory fees. 

 

If you adopt more than one child you will be required to pay an additional $500. per child at the time of your home study approval.  If you do not complete your adoption process the first $500. is NOT refundable.  If you have paid for additional children and you do not complete the adoption process or if you do not adopt any additional children the applicable additional child or additional children fees you paid at the time of the home study completion will be refunded upon submission of evidence of either quitting the adoption process or the placement of less children than you expected or were approved for.  Family Connections Inc., stores the additional   children fees in an escrow account until you have accepted additional child(ren).  Upon acceptance of additional children, the fees are due to be paid to the accrediting agency, IAAME at which time they are not refundable.
