Colorado Grandparents Rights
Motivated to Serve Your Best Interests
As a grandparent, you likely feel a significant sense of responsibility, care, and love for your grandchild. In recent years, grandparents’ rights have become far more substantial than they once were. The courts have recognized the irreplaceable role a grandmother or grandfather can play in a child’s life.
Whether your child has divorced from his or her spouse or your grandchild may be facing foster care, the law does not rule out grandparents rights. In certain instances, you may be able to legally adopt the child in case of extenuating circumstances. The courts will always prioritize the child’s best interests, and you very well may be a part of that equation.
There are the instances in which a grandparent can earn visitation of a grandchild, including but not limited to:
- The grandchild's parents have divorced, annulled, or legally separated
- Someone other than a parent has custody of the child
- The child’s parent has passed away
- A child has been removed from his home by law enforcement officials due to domestic violence
- A grandparent has provided physical care to the child for at least 6 months wants parental responsibilities
