Colorado’s Uniform Child Abduction Prevention Act (UCAPA) backs two separate acts, known separately as the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act and the federal Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act.
The UCAPA allows Colorado 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. Our family law office can offer you expert legal advice and help you understand complex legal documents, such as the UCAPA, to determine how they will affect your current situation.
If a Colorado court finds a child faces the potential risk of parental abduction, they may issue a court order imposing specific restrictions. Some of these restrictions may include:
In the most severe of cases, a court may even respond to an imminent threat of abduction by issuing a warrant to take physical custody of the child by law enforcement to protect them.
