What are Grandparents' Rights in Colorado?
As a grandparent, you have the right to petition for visitation rights (or custody) under special circumstances. Our firm's top priority is to help you gather the necessary evidence to show that it is in the child's best interests to maintain their relationship and visitation time with you.
Below are some guidelines for when grandparents may be eligible to petition for visitation rights:
- The parents are legally separated
- The parents are going through a child custody dispute
- The parents are not married
- The parents are living apart
- The child is not living with the parents
- One parent supports the petition
- One of the parents has passed away
Our firm's top priority is to help you gather the necessary evidence to show that it is in the child's best interests to maintain their relationship and visitation time with you.
