I’m a Stepparent & would like to Adopt my Stepchild. Now what?

In Colorado, as a Stepparent, you may be able to adopt your stepchild. There are certain requirements you must meet and a lengthy court process as well. The termination of the non-custodial biological parent’s rights will also need to take place. Of all the adoptions, the Stepparent adoption is somewhat simplified and common in Colorado.
