Outdated References To "Illegitimate" Children

Concerning the removal of statutory references to the marital status of parents of a child.
2018 Regular Session
Children & Domestic Matters

Statutory Revision Committee. The bill removes or modernizes outdated statutory references to a 'legitimate' or 'illegitimate' child and a 'child born out of wedlock'. Colorado only recognizes parentage of a child and acknowledges that the parent and child relationship extends equally to every child and every parent, regardless of the marital status of the parents.
(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
