Family Law

Colorado Adoption Lawyers

Adoption creates families. Adoption is the legal process where a person (or couple) assumes the parental responsibilities and rights for a child. The process can be contested or non-contested by the child's biological parent or parents. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., we assist individuals with the adoption process and other legal family law operations.

A Close Look at the Adoption Process

In all adoption cases, the adoptive child must be "legally available for adoption." This means one of the following: a court has terminated the parent-child legal relationship of one of the parents, or a court has approved the voluntary relinquishment of the parent-child legal relationship. Most often, this termination of the parent-child relationship is done as a part of the adoption case.

The parent-child relationship of a parent can be terminated without that parent's consent when he or she has failed without cause to provide reasonable support for the child for a period of one year or more and/or has abandoned the child (not had reasonable contact) for a period of one year or more.

This is especially so when the whereabouts or even the identity of a biological parent are not known, or where a biological parent will not consent to the adoption. The experience and resources of our family law attorneys can help make your adoption the positive process that creating an adoptive family ought to be.
