Denver Adoption Lawyers
Decades of Experience across Colorado Helping to Complete Your Family
Each year, approximately one and a half million children are adopted in the United States. In Colorado, adoption can be agreed to by the parents or ordered by a court. The most common adoption is when a step-parent decides to legally adopt a husband or wife’s child from a previous relationship. Through the procedure of adoption, all of the rights and responsibilities of the child are turned over from one or both natural parents to an adoptive parent.
Types of Adoption in Colorado
In Colorado, there are several types of adoption: Private domestic adoption, international adoption, and foster care adoption. According to the Colorado Department of Human Services, the most common form of adoption is through the foster care system. Additionally, adoption isn’t limited to children (persons under 18 years old). Adult adoption can create lasting, beneficial, and legal family relationships as well.
The laws surrounding these arrangements can be complicated. It is important that you get help from experienced family law attorneys who understand how to navigate these important proceedings. With more than 50 combined years of experience helping our clients through adoption matters, Kaplan Law L.L.C. can plan effectively for your new family member and work toward a favorable outcome.
What to Do Next
Following an adoption, the natural parent no longer has any obligation or rights regarding the child. The adoptive parents are then responsible for the well-being of the minor child and must adequately provide for them in every area of the child’s needs.
