Helping You Understand Colorado’s Child Relocation Laws
The relationship a parent has with his or her child is precious. Time spent on the phone, text messages, and webcams can ensure communication, but nothing is a substitute for the close contact that parents have with their children while sharing the same home or living in close geographic proximity.
One of the most contentious issues in a divorce, post-dissolution or with unmarried parents is a situation where one parent requests a “relocation” or a “removal” with the children. Whether you are wishing to relocate with your child or need assistance in preventing the removal of your child, it is important to have an experienced attorney advocate for your interests.

The Rights Of Parents Who Are Moving Out Of State
After a divorce or the finalization of a visitation schedule, parents with primary residential custody are not permitted to move out of Colorado with their children unless they have permission from the other parent or a court order.
Any approved move will have to be demonstrably in the best interest of the child. When a child’s parents are both actively involved in his or her life, it is less likely the court will approve a move that will affect one of the parent’s visitation rights. While the court cannot prevent a parent from moving, he or she has the authority to prevent a parent from removing his or her child from the state.
