What is the Law on Guardianship of Colorado

According to Colorado Revised Statutes (CRS, for its acronym in English), there is protection in cases where a guardian receives a legal appointment “to make decisions in the name of an adult” or less old.


One area in which the appointment of guardians takes place refers to cases of incapacitated adults. For consideration as a gatekeeper, you must first file a petition with the court to establish why there is a need for a guardianship.


Colorado law allows the following relationships between the tutor and for those under guardianship: the caregiver can receive money for use in meeting the needs of the ward, may establish a residence of a household, authorize medical treatment and dental and make decisions to protect the welfare of the child or disabled adult.


Grandparents or other relatives of a child can use the help of a program of assistance mandated relationship. To qualify, however, the family must obtain guardianship, showing a commitment to the stabilization of life for the child and prove that it acted as foster parents or guardians before guardianship.


The guards cannot transfer or move out of state custody without court permission obtained through a petition process. Not only must file a petition for guardianship move, another is required in the state of relocation, seeking the approval of the guardianship court there.
