Seeking grandparents' rights is difficult, not impossible

Grandparents' rights are a topic that many people have heard of. In the recent years, more and more grandparents are turning to the courts so they can have a meaningful relationship with their grandparents. Grandparents in Colorado should know that this is a grandparents' rights state, but as we discussed last week, that doesn't mean that getting those rights recognized will be easy.

Does Colorado give grandparents the right to see grandchildren?

Having a meaningful relationship with grandparents can have a great impact on children. Some children aren't given the opportunity to build that relationship with their grandparents because of a troubled relationship between the child's parents and grandparents. In some cases, grandparents' rights might allow the grandparents to have visitation with their grandchildren.

Same-sex marriage ruling from Supreme Court might cause havoc

Same-sex couples in Colorado might have dodged a proverbial bullet if the Supreme Court opts to rule against same-sex marriage. In Colorado, state officials didn't contest the rulings of lower courts that were for same-sex marriage. Same-sex couples in other states might not be so lucky if the Supreme Court rules against same-sex marriage.

Common issues facing domestic partners

More and more couples are choosing to live together in long-term relationships instead of getting married, but the laws have not quite caught up. This means that these couples do not have the same legal rights as married couples in the event of a separation or the death or incapacitation of one party. However, there are steps you can take to protect yourself and your interests, and we can help.
