Is Financial Help Available?
At the Law Office of Joyce S. Schwensen, we understand that you may be faced with financial difficulties because of your pregnancy and the upcoming birth of your child. The law in Washington allows you to receive reimbursement for your medical and legal bills from your chosen adoptive family. They may also be allowed to provide you with additional financial assistance during your pregnancy and for a few weeks after the baby is born.
But this additional assistance requires approval by a court. So, it is important to work with an experienced Washington adoption attorney. At the Law Office of Joyce S. Schwensen we have obtained court approval for many birth mothers to receive financial help during their pregnancies and their post-partum recovery period.

Types of Financial Assistance Available
Washington law always allows for the medical and legal expenses of birth parents to be paid by the adoptive parents of the baby. So, choosing adoption should not cost you anything, and, in fact, should relieve you of any responsibility for medical expenses of the pregnancy and childbirth.
But with the assistance of our office, you may be able to receive reimbursement for other expenses, as well, such as maternity clothes, transportation expenses, lost wages, and even some of your regular living expenses, depending on your specific situation.
Because these reimbursements must be approved by a court, it is important that you work with an experienced Washington adoption lawyer in order to receive financial assistance beyond payment of your medical and legal bills.
