Terminating a Common Law Marriage If a couple wishes to end their common law marriage, they must go through a divorce just like any other couple. Because a common law marriage is recognized by the state as a valid, legal marriage just like any other, the divorce must address the same issues involved in any divorce or dissolution. Couples terminating a common law marriage must come to an agreement on parental responsibility of their children, visitation time allocation, child support, and property distribution. Any future marriage of either spouse will be invalid if the common law marriage is not dissolved prior to the next marriage.

Understanding the Uniform Child Abduction Prevention Act Colorado’s Uniform Child Abduction Prevention Act (UCAPA) backs two separate acts, known as the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act and the federal Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act. The UCAPA allows the courts to impose measures that are specifically designed to prevent child abduction from either parents before, during, and after a court has issued a child custody decree.

According to Colorado’s Revised Statutes 14-13.5-101, there are many ways that the courts can implement measures to prevent abduction, including:

  • Imposition of travel restrictions
  • Identification of the child’s habitual residence
  • Detailed descriptions of each party’s custody and visitation rights
  • Implementation of civil and criminal penalties for violations of visitation or custody
  • Prohibition of removing the child from any location without the permission of the court
  • Reviewing reasons for possible abduction, including previous attempts, threats of domestic abuse, stalking, activities of planned abduction, or dependency and neglect
  • Other considerations, including the age of the child, the potential harm to the child from abduction, the legal difficulties of returning the child if abducted
