Utah Lt. Gov. reduces document authentication fees for adopting parents

Utah Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox is pleased to announce a reduction in fees for authenticating adoption paperwork used for overseas adoptions.

The fees have been reduced from $15.00 per document to $10.00 per document. The change aims to ease some of the financial burdens for Utah parents working to complete the often costly and complicated steps to adopt a child from abroad.

“We understand that fees on these documents add up quickly,” Lt. Governor Cox said. “I hope this change will make the process even just a little easier on Utah families.”

The reduced fees went into effect on July 1, 2018.
