Fees are charged for all professional services on a time basis. Our fees are charged at the "Tariff of Fees" for social workers in private practice suggested by SAASWIPP. Our fees for adoption work and legal work generally is calculated on an hourly basis and changes annually. This includes direct screening, all interviews, counselling of birth parents and prospective adoptive parents, home visits, appointments with relevant professionals, court appearances, birth registration, legal services, support services, the child’s medical assessment and blood tests. Court reports, medical and psychological assessments are charged for separately.
We hope that this information has assisted you in your decision making process and any further questions you may have can be directly addressed to the social worker involved.
