    "A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence"
    Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.

    "The professionalism, guidance, and candor I’ve received from each person in this law firm has been beyond reproach."

    I’m not one to have an extensive experience with law firms or lawyers and court in general. However, the professionalism, guidance, and candor I’ve received from each person in this law firm have been beyond reproach. Anytime, I mean, anytime, I’ve had a question about my case and the way forward, I was met with a friendly and constructive conversation about my case. There was never a doubt in my mind, that I made the right choice when I selected this law firm to represent me. Caryn and Stacie have been a wonderful blessing to my life and my legal proceedings. If you are looking for a no-BS law firm that has a significant reputation in the Springs area, I absolutely recommend this one. Even though I hope to not have to deal with this again, fingers crossed and every lucky charm, I’d trust this law firm with my representation to handle the hard stuff and give me ease with court proceedings. Thank you all for what you do and have done for me, my family, and my career. Bless you all.

    "I was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only Caryn carries, but the firm as a whole."
    I, unfortunately, was involved with two separate situations within a few years of each other, which left me in quite a bind both times. I was lucky enough to have Caryn assist me in both cases and was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only she carries, but the firm as a whole. One of the best, if not the best lawyers I've ever come across. Extremely nice and very honest. I was able to resolve my situations with minimal impact and continue my life without fear of being held back.
    - Former Client
    "From the start, they treated me incredibly well and were very open about everything from my situation."
    The Gasper Law Group was fantastic. From the start, they treated me incredibly well and were very open about everything from my situation. They were incredibly attentive to me and my case and made sure I fully understood everything while supporting me in every way they could. Caryn was AMAZING in handling my case. Her knowledge, confidence, and attentiveness were second to none. I would recommend them to anyone for any situation.

What Are Grandparents’ Rights in Colorado?

While grandparents don’t receive automatic rights to child custody or visitation, various provisions can allow grandparents to petition the court under certain circumstances. Under Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) §19-1-117, grandparents can generally request visitation rights in special situations. 

Common examples of qualifying circumstances include: 

  • The child's parents are divorced, legally separated, deceased
  • The child is not residing with a parent
  • The parents are deemed unfit or unable to properly care for the child

In these circumstances, grandparents would need to demonstrate that they can provide a stable, loving, and nurturing environment for the child. Our experienced grandparents' rights attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of your case in Colorado Springs by helping you file a petition, manage important deadlines, and gather relevant evidence to support your claim to custody or visitation rights of your grandchildren. 

When Can Grandparents Seek Custody or Visitation Rights? 

It’s essential to understand that family courts are required to prioritize the best interest of the child when making custody and visitation decisions. The judge can take various factors into account to determine the child’s best interests in a grandparents’ rights case, such as: 

  • The child's unique needs
  • The child's preference, if age-appropriate
  • The mental and physical health of all parties involved
  • The grandparent's capability to meet the child’s needs
  • Potential impacts on the child's physical and emotional health
  • The strength and quality of the existing bond between the grandparent and grandchild
