Why Should You Work with a Colorado Adoption Attorney?

Tuesday, 29 March 2011

blog-logoThe cost of adoption may have kept you from moving forward with it for quite awhile, but now that you’re ready to adopt a child, don’t let cost concerns keep you from hiring a Colorado adoption attorney

Adoption can be a long and tedious process, and you may experience some twists and turns along the way.  Whether you are just starting a family or planning to grow your family through adoption, you should enlist the services of an experienced adoption attorney.

A Colorado adoption attorney will be a great help to you in your journey toward adopting a child, and he or she may keep you from becoming overwhelmed by the adoption process. 

Whether you have already identified a birth mother or not, an adoption attorney can act as an “intermediary” by seeking birth parents for you, or a group of adoptive parents.  It is important to note that an attorney cannot discriminate between adoptive applicants based on their age or the number of children already in the home. 

If the legalities of adoption concern you, a Colorado adoption attorney can clearly explain the process and give you direct advice and access to legal information along the way.  However, if you are only looking for legal representation to finalize the adoption, then it is possible to hire an adoption attorney for that one specific task.

Another way to work with an adoption attorney is by matching oneself up with a group of potential adoptive families.  In these cases, an attorney can reduce the amount of time spent waiting to find a birth mother and child.  Provided that a licensed home study has occurred, a child may be placed directly in the home of the adoptive family after the parent has officially surrendered parental rights.

Do you think a Colorado adoption attorney could help you get through the adoption process with more clarity and less stress?  Contact the adoption attorneys at the Marrison Family Law LLC today and ask for a free consultation.
