Family Law Attorney in Denver
In most situations, the
adoption process proves to be far more intricate than the adopting parents anticipated,
even if it is just one stepparent adopting the child of their new spouse.
For same-sex couples looking to grow their family through adoption, even
more obstacles may be in their path. At The Moodie Law Firm, our mission
and our passion is helping families of all types find happiness and comfort
after coming face-to-face with serious family law complications. Please
do not hesitate to
contact our adoption lawyer in Denver before you start the same-sex adoption process.
Home Reviews & Adoption Options
A same-sex couple that wants to raise a child may only have adoption to
do so, as scientific measures could prove to be too costly or time-consuming,
or simply not an experience they want. For this reason and more, our family
law firm feels driven to uplift and encourage same-sex spouses during
the adoption process since we know it might be their first and last option.
It begins with a state-managed home study to determine if the aspiring
adopters can provide a healthy family life in a stabile home environment.
An inspector or interviewer will be interested in:
- Each parent’s criminal history
- Medical necessities of either parent
- Financial stability of the household
- Reasons behind wanting an adopted child
If the social worker is satisfied with the apparent conditions of your
home and home life, you can expect that a judge will approve of your same-sex
adoption. From there, you will have to decide what sort of adoption you
would like to use: public or private. In a public agency adoption, you
will be using a foster home to find the right child for you. In private
agency adoption, you may work directly with the parents of the child up
for adoption, or work with a company specializing in adoptions. There
are pros and cons to both forms of adoption, so it is advised you speak
with an attorney first before reaching your final decision.
