Deployed Parents, Custody and Visitation

The legislature has just passed and Governor Hickenlooper has just signed a law to set up provisions concerning custody and visitation rights of deployed parents. This law defines what a deployment is and is an attempt to address the custody and visitation issues of military personnel in a time of great stress. There are notification provisions and provisions for interim agreements granting custodial responsibility during deployment. The law provides powers of attorney and creates a judicial procedure for granting custodial responsibility during deployment. Finally, there are detailed provisions for the termination of deployment agreements at the end of the deployment.
