How does the Colorado Stay at Home Order Affect Your Parenting Time?

Posted by Dan Chandler | Apr 03, 2020 | 0 Comments

The recently published stay at home order issued by the State of Colorado may have you wondering how it affects your ability to exchange your kids and exercise parenting time. The short answer is that it should have no affect.  Section II Paragraph F of the Order provides an exception to the prohibition on travel for "Necessary Travel." Section III. Paragraph B. goes on to define Necessary Travel, and explains that travel required by law enforcement or court order is an authorized exception to the stay at home order. Your parenting plan is a court order covered by the exception, and so you can continue to exercise your parenting plan.

However, you should be aware of the need for social distancing as outlined in that order. Both parties should ensure that they are keeping their childrens' contact restricted to those who reside with them in order to help slow the spread of the virus. Have frank discussions with the other party to protect your parenting time, but ensure that your exchanges are in the best interests of the children.
