There are three types of adoptions in Colorado.

The first is a step-parent adoption where the natural parent either relinquishes his/her rights by consenting to the adoption or has abandoned the child for over a year. After the adoption is finalized, a new birth certificate will be issued naming the party adopting the child as the child’s parent.

The second type of adoption is referred to as a private adoption. A private adoption is very difficult because both parties (the relinquishing parent and party wishing to adopt) must have 25 hours of counseling, which is rarely completed by the relinquishing parent.

The third type of adoption is that through an agency. The agency that has custody of the child will conduct a background check and is in charge of placement of the child.

Traffic Lawyers in Grand Junction, CO

A person may lose their driving privileges if there is an accumulation of too many penalty points within a set period of time. In Colorado, an adult driver has 12 points in any 12 consecutive months, and 18 points in any 24 consecutive months if no violations have occurred. Because some violations carry as much as 12 points, if you receive a traffic ticket or are involved in an accident, it is imperative that you attempt to get the ticket reduced to a lesser charge or have the charge deferred (meaning that no action will be taken on the ticket if you comply with the requirements issued by the Court) to avoid penalty points against your license. We can help you through the legal process and do our best to save you points and helping you to maintain your driving privileges.
