Grandparents’ Rights

For years, Heckenbach Suazo LLP has handled cases involving the assertion of grandparents’ rights and has worked with all parties to achieve results that are in the best interests of the children. Our family law expertise can be critical in providing advice and assistance to grandparents and other nonparents who may be seeking to establish or protect their legal rights and responsibilities concerning children in their care.

How Does It Work?

Colorado law recognizes the role and involvement that grandparents often have in raising and caring for their grandchildren. When there has been a court proceeding involving the custody of a child, grandparents may request visitation with their grandchildren. Additionally, under certain circumstances, grandparents may be able to request an allocation of parental responsibilities, assigning them greater rights and responsibilities for their grandchildren.

This ability to request an allocation of parental responsibilities even extends to nonrelatives, depending on the nature of the relationship between the nonrelative and the child or children.
