Colorado Non-Married Parents Allocation of Responsibilities

Even if two parents have never been married, they both still retain rights similar to those enjoyed by parents who were once married. Additionally, they can still seek a legal agreement dictating the custody (parenting time, decision-making) of their child—this is what is called “Allocation of Parental Responsibilities”.
