Colorado Adoption Process
In Colorado, adopting a child legally gives the adopting party all obligations and responsibilities that a parent has, but also all the parental rights and benefits. Some adoptions must go through agencies who have an attorney of their own, but other adoptions may go through the court system. For those adoptions, it is vital to have a well-versed attorney.
Adopting a child can be one of the most joyous times in a new parent’s life and we are happy to help remove the stressful and time consuming aspects of the process so that the parent and child can focus on their new found relationship.
What to Expect
There can be a lot of paperwork and processes in an adoption case. Because the relationship between a biological parent and child is being legally severed, the court expects perfection when it comes to following the procedures. Sometimes, adoptions can be contested as well, in which case, the adoption becomes that more complicated.
