Questions Answered by State Department on Fee Schedule for International Adoptions



There has been much discussion and concern of late in international adoption circles about the change in the accrediting entity (AE) which accredits and oversees international adoption agencies. In the past, the Council on Accreditation (COA) has been that entity. They have decided not to continue in this role and are being replaced by Intercountry Adoption Accreditation and Maintenance Entity (IAAME).

Last week, we reported that The State Department recently announced the new fee schedule for IAAME. The State Department has now released additional information to answer questions raised by international adoption agencies and adoptive parents.

As always, if you have further questions or need clarification of the points in either of the above linked announcements, please contact your adoption agency directly.
