Deciding to expand your family is a big step, especially if you choose to do so through adoption. Adoption is the act of becoming legally responsible for a child, which can happen in a number of circumstances. You might already be caring for a child and wish to make your legal responsibilities official or you could be looking to find a child to add to your family. Whatever the case, if you are contemplating adopting a child, you need an adoption attorney on your side on your side.

Why Do I Need an Adoption Lawyer?

Hiring an adoption attorney might seem superfluous to some. However, the adoption process can involve many requirements and technicalities that can be tedious or difficult to understand without the help of a professional legal guide.

In Colorado, before a child is adopted he or she must be legally “available.” In other words, the legal rights and responsibilities for the child of one or both parents must be terminated. This can happen because the biological parent has relinquished those rights, or by the court terminating a biological parent’s parental rights involuntarily. In either case, able and willing adoptive parents can step in and adopt the child, unless other legal barriers exist.

Reliable, Respected Legal Guidance

While the adoption process may seem straightforward, it often takes a significant amount of time. There are a number of background checks for adoptive parents to complete before a case can be filed and moving forward with termination of biological parent rights after filing may involve several individual steps. In many cases, biological parents must be located or provided notice through service or publication prior to their parental rights being formally terminated by the court. When you work with one of our experienced family lawyers, you can rest easy knowing our team is handling each and every step of the legal process on your behalf.
