Colorado Adoption Lawyers
Are you thinking about welcoming a new child into your home and family? If so, we may be able to help. Adoption of a child terminates all of the birth parents’ rights and responsibilities, i.e., a birth parent cannot just reappear one day and try to reclaim the child. Additionally, once a child is adopted, the child’s birth parents are under no responsibility to provide monetary support for the child, and the child loses any right to inherit from them unless specified in the will. See, C.R.S. 19-5-211.
If you are looking to adopt, having a skilled attorney working for you can facilitate the adoption process. The court system takes all cases involving children very seriously, and it requires background checks through various agencies and proper filing of the appropriate paperwork. Enlisting the help of our team will help speed up your adoption process and make sure you have completed all necessary steps, so you and your family can officially welcome your new family member soon.
