    Assuming the bio father will sign off on it, about 5000 dollars.
    But if bio father will not sign off for it, first it may not even be allowed, but it will be fought in court and would start at about 10,000 or so at least.

    This can vary by area. I've seen fees starting at $1500. So shop around.
