Boulder Attorney Experienced in Representing Clients in Relocation and Removal Cases

In Colorado, parental relocation refers to moving a child's residence so that the geographic ties between the child and the other parent are substantially changed. Parental relocation is one of the most difficult issues that can arise in a dissolution of marriage, allocation of parental responsibilities, or paternity proceeding. When a parent seeks permission to move out of state, or to a different geographical area, the ability of the other parent to exercise frequent visitation with the child can be severely impacted.

Out of state job offers, new relationships/marriage, family support, and domestic violence are common reasons and justifications given by a parent seeking permission to relocate with a minor child. Any parent intending to relocate with a minor child is required to provide written notice to the other parent as soon as practicable of his or her intent to relocate. This notice must also include: the location where the party intends to reside, the reason for the relocation, and a proposed revised parenting plan.
