PUBLIC
BILL SUMMARY For NONPARENT CUSTODY AND VISITATION ACT

JOINT COMMITTEE COMMITTEE ON COLORADO COMMISSION ON UNIFORM STATE LAWS
Date Sep 25, 2019      
Location HCR 0112



Nonparent Custody and Visitation Act - Consideration tabled indefinitely


10:59:40 AM  

Marie Avery Moses, Co-chair of the CBA Family Law Section Legislative Committee, reported that, in answer to the commission's request for additional feedback, the section contacted other groups and other interested parties and that there is strong opposition to the act. There is confusion regarding how the act interacts with current Colorado law and it may either restrict some individuals from asserting visitation rights or cause confusion. The act is intended to work in tandem with the Uniform Parentage Act, which has not been enacted in Colorado, and enacting this act without the Uniform Parentage Act will cause problems. The commission's consensus was to defer action on this act for now and to continue to monitor it for future introduction.
