Longmont Adoption Attorneys

Navigate Adoption with Confidence

Legal paperwork may play a key role in the adoption process, but it should not be the sole focus in your adoption journey. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., we streamline complex adoption processes by doing the heavy lifting on your behalf.

Our approach is as strategic as it is empathetic—designed to empower families by equipping them with the resources they need to build lasting memories and achieve their dreams of expanding their families.

Whether you're navigating contested or non-contested adoption proceedings, we're here to provide the support and legal assistance you need every step of the way.

Exploring Your Adoption Options

Thirty years of guiding Longmont families has shown us that every adoption journey is unique. That is why our attorneys specialize in various forms of adoption, including:

  • Adoption by a step-parent: Step-parent adoption strengthens the bond between a step-parent and child by legally formalizing their relationship. This form of adoption is useful for step-parents who wish to obtain the same rights and duties as a biological parent. In these cases, you can count on our family law team to deliver full support—from managing paperwork to court representation and beyond.
  • Adoption by a relative: We also offer services to relatives who wish to adopt a minor. In such cases, we will simplify the kinship adoption process, ensuring you meet all legal criteria, whether you are stepping in because the parents have died, cannot provide a stable environment, or are incarcerated. Regardless of your situation, we are here to help you negotiate the adoption journey with care and confidence.
  • Custodial adoption: If you have provided physical custody to a child for over a year, our family law attorneys may be able to assist with custodial adoption. Whether you are navigating complex domestic relationships or probate, we will help you meet all the necessary requirements and achieve the best possible outcome.
  • Adoption of a partner’s child: Our firm provides comprehensive support for the adoption of a partner's child, a process distinct from stepparent adoption that does not require the parents to be married. We focus on empowering clients, irrespective of their marital status, to legally establish parentage and parental rights, ensuring the security and integrity of the family unit.
