Grandparents raising their grandchildren have a difficult role to establish for themselves, for their grandchildren, and for their adult children. Knowledge about decisions made in court regarding custodial rights, adoption, and visiting rights is hard to come by. This section of our website will provide information about the laws in Colorado in terms of your rights as grandparents in many situations (i.e. adult child divorcing, having a grandchild in foster care, death of an adult child). We encourage you to watch the video titled, "Strengthening Grandfamilies: Legal Rights of Grandparents" in our video section to learn more about petitioning the court.

If there is a topic you are curious about that you do not see covered in this section of our website, please use our 'Contact Us' page to inquire about specific circumstances or suggestions for future topics.
