After we meet and discuss your circumstances, we will put together a proposal for fees and a payment plan. Depending on your circumstances, the proposal may be an hourly estimate for each stage of the adoption, a “fixed” fee plus cost, or a combination. You will get to see the proposal and have input finalizing the proposal. Most often, you are required to pay a deposit before we begin work. Invoices may be sent to you monthly or at intervals that meet your budget.
