Post-placement Services

The post-placement takes place once you are home with your baby.  The number and frequency of post-placement visits are determined by the agency, sometimes the state where the baby was born and the State of Washington.  The good news is, this is not something you will need to worry about.  I will work closely with your agency and/or attorney to make sure we are fulfilling state and agency requirements with regard to the number and frequency of the post-placement visits.  Also, I will let you know what paperwork is needed for the post-placement which generally consists of a report from the child’s pediatrician as well as proof of immunization.

The cost of post-placement visits are $500 for the first visit which occurs in your home and $400 for each additional visit which occur in the YAF office.  In addition to the longer post-placement visits per Washington Administrative Code 388-147-1690, you and your social worker must have face-to-face contact every 30 days until the adoption is finalized.  These 30 days visits will occur at the office and will be 15-20 minutes in length and cost $25/visit.
