Birth Father Rights in Colorado
While some pregnant women considering adoption in CO have the full support and involvement of the birth father in the creation of their adoption plan, other women may be in situations where the birth father is unknown, absent or unsupportive, leading them to wonder if they can move forward with an adoption without the father’s involvement in Colorado.
Common questions about birth father rights in Colorado from pregnant women considering adoption have included:
“Can I choose adoption when the father is unknown in Colorado?”
”Can I give my baby up for adoption without the father’s consent in CO?”
“Does the birth father have to agree to adoption? What if he doesn’t want to place the child for adoption, but I do?”
For answers to these questions about birth father rights in Colorado and more, call 1-800-ADOPTION now or request free adoption information online.
