Fort Collins Grandparent Custody Issues

I think my grandchild’s parents are unfit. How do I obtain custody?

Mitch Tacy, Attorney for Grandparents Rights

Colorado Child Custody battles aren’t always between mothers and fathers. The grandparents of a child may seek custody as well. When the parents of the child are incapable of caring and raising their child, the grandparents may be granted physical and/or legal custody. The courts will honor the role grandparents play in a child’s life by awarding them custody when it’s in the child’s overall best interest.

Mitch Tacy Family Law Attorney & Mediator has helped grandparents gain custody of their grandchildren. A grandparent may seek custody of their grandchildren if the child was subjected to physical, psychological, or emotional abuse or neglect. In addition, grandparents commonly seek child custody when the parents of their grandchildren are incarcerated, underage, or guilty of committing domestic violence or another criminal offense.

How can I spend more time with my grandchild after their parents divorce?

It’s not uncommon for grandparents to seek visitation rights in order to spend more time with their grandchildren. The courts frequently acknowledge the value of the relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren. As long as it’s in the best interests of the child, the court will usually side with a grandparent who wishes to obtain visitation rights.
