Adopting a child is, without a doubt, one of life’s major decisions. At Price Family Law, we work tirelessly to assist our clients as they embark on this exciting endeavor. While each journey is unique and results in very specific concerns, there are several common questions that seem to arise time and time again. Below, we have shared these with you, along with our responses to them. We hope they will provide you with some basic information regarding adopting a child in Denver, Colorado.
While you are not required by law to have a personal adoption attorney represent you, you should. While some adoption agencies have attorneys to facilitate the process, engaging an adoption lawyer to protect your best interests is a good idea.
In Colorado, you must be at least 21 years old in order to pursue an adoption.
There are no age restrictions. Colorado law permits expectant mothers of any age to place their unborn child up for adoption without parental consent. Your adoption attorney can explain how the process would work and provide you with valuable information.
Open adoptions take place when both the birth mother and adoptive parents want some type of contact with each other. Your adoption lawyer can help draft a plan outlining the type of communication as well as its timing. Closed adoptions, on the other hand, occur when both the adoptive parent(s) and birth mother choose to not have any contact whatsoever. These are usually facilitated through an adoption agency.
A private adoption occurs when an individual or couple adopts a child directly from the birth mother. There is no adoption agency involved. A Denver adoption lawyer can help facilitate this process for you.
Perhaps. It depends upon the nature of the crime. For example, if you have been convicted of domestic abuse, crimes against a child, or violating a protection order, you would be prohibited from adopting. Other convictions, which your adoption attorney can explain, can also impact your ability to adopt.
We hope the information we have provided is helpful to you. Should you have additional questions regarding adopting in Denver, reach out to our child custody attorneys at 720-615-1750 and schedule a free consultation. We look forward to meeting you and addressing your personal concerns directly. We know the adoption process can be confusing, and we look forward to helping to make it a little less intimidating.
If you are looking to adopt a child, you probably know there are multiple avenues which you can pursue. The process surrounding one each differs, and the right choice is incredibly personal. What works for one individual or family may not be right for another. Below we have provided a brief description of each.
In each type of adoption, adoptive parents must meet certain requirements and adhere to the specific adoption process. In all cases, working with a seasoned adoption attorney is a wise choice.
