The Colorado Adoption Process with Boney Law Firm

Termination of Biological Parent's Right

A necessary prerequisite before a non-biological parent can adopt a child.

According to Colorado law, these rights must either be voluntarily relinquished by the biological parent(s) or terminated by the court due to specific circumstances, like neglect, or abuse. This step ensures that the child's best interests are protected and as well as paves the way for you as a prospective adoptive parent(s) to legally assume the role of you as the parent.

Vetting Process

Once the termination of parental rights is complete, you as a prospective adoptive parent(s) must undergo three background checks, fingerprinting, and a home visit, as required by Colorado adoption laws to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the child.

I will help you prepare for this–providing you with guidance on what to expect and as well as how to navigate any potential challenges through these very specific procedures.

Legal Finalization

This officially establishes you as the legal parent(s) of the child, granting you all the rights, responsibilities, as well as the privileges that come with a parent by birth. This means that as an adoptive parent, you will be able to make financial, medical, and educational decisions for and on behalf of your child.

Ensuring that all legal formalities are correctly handled, I'll be by your side during this momentous occasion.
