The divorce orseparation of two people that have a child together can truly impact the wholefamily, including the grandparents. One parent may be given sole custody,while the other parent is granted limited or supervised parenting time. The grandparents of the parent receiving limited or supervised parenting timemay be prevented from seeing the grandchildren by the other parent. Parents will sometimes limit the grandparent's contact with the children as away to punish the other parent or the grandparents.
Colorado has a grandparent visitation statute. Grandparents that haveestablished a strong bond with their grandchild(ren) and can demonstrate thatan ongoing relationship with their grandchildren is in the best interests ofthe children may be awarded grandparent visitation.
