Legal Answers
1846 Questions Answered
Q. I'm the mother, can I take 3 children out of Colorado To Washington
A: If no custody orders are in place AND no current custodial litigation involves the children (in which you have been served), consent by the other parent or courts are NOT required to leave the state. However, the remaining parent can file for divorce (91 days) and/or custody (183-184 days) in Colorado after the departure--this would result in litigating in Colorado.
Q. My boyfriend and I want to get married. I’m 18 he’s 19. We live in Nebraska. If we go to CO can he get in trouble?
A: The Colorado marriage would only be valid if one or both parties of married couple were Colorado residents (permanently reside in Colorado for at least 91 days). If the residency requirement can be met in CO, the CO marriage can be transferred to NE (even though legal majority in NE is 19). An alternative to consider is Nevada, which still has the least restrictive residency requirements for marriage in the US (check to make sure you meet all the requirements in NV BEFORE you travel!). There should be no legal concerns for marriage forum shopping, beyond knowingly providing false information in a marriage application (e.g. state of residency). Even then, the most likely punishment is invalidity of the marriage versus a criminal charge per se.
Q. I left the state of Florida without the permission of the father there are no court orders, can I get in trouble?
A: If there is no court order or litigation involving the children when you left, you should be able to the leave any state without any civil or criminal violations. Kidnapping charges vary by state, but usually require a pre-existing court order (which is being violated) or some concrete and immediate health/safety danger to the child before the DA would even consider charging parental kidnapping. Colorado gains sole and exclusive jurisdiction over the child once the child has permanently resided in Colorado for at least 6 months plus 1 day. If Colorado has jurisdiction over the child, any litigation involving the child can only occur in Colorado in the county where the child currently resides.
