Representing Colorado Parents In Relocation And Removal Proceedings
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 proceedings.

Relocating With A Child: What To Know
When a parent seeks permission to move out of state, or to a different geographical area, the ability of the other parent to enforce their parental rights and 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.
Offering Prompt And Comprehensive Analysis
Courts will scrutinize the reason or justification for relocation, and consider as many as twenty other factors, in determining whether a parent will be permitted to relocate with a minor child. Thus, receiving a prompt and comprehensive legal analysis of any proposed relocation is paramount.
