Child Relocation from Colorado
State Requirements for Child Removal from Colorado
Relocation outside of Colorado can be a difficult and traumatic experience for both parents and children. If the parents cannot reach an amicable agreement, a request for relocation of a child out of state may be escalated to a family court that will consider all pertinent information before making an appropriate and legally-binding decision. The legal process can be complicated for many, and an accomplished divorce attorney with Feldmann Nagel Cantafio Margulis Gonnell PLLC can help make your case heard in the most effective way possible.
Colorado has several requirements for legally relocating a child from the state. First, the custodial parent must provide written notice to the non-custodial parent outlining the parent’s desire to relocate, including the relocation destination, appropriate reasons for the relocation and a modified agreement for parenting time, decision-making, and child support. Ultimately, the court will consider several factors before making a decision in the best interest of the child at a relocation hearing, if necessary.
