Understanding the Uniform Child Abduction Prevention Act
Colorado's Uniform Child Abduction Prevention Act (UCAPA) backs two
separate acts, known as the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement
Act and the federal Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act. The UCAPA allows
the 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.
- According to Colorado's Revised Statutes 14-13.5-101, there are many
ways that the courts can implement measures to prevent abduction, including:
- Imposition of travel restrictions
- Identification of the child's habitual residence
- Detailed descriptions of each party's custody and visitation rights
- Implementation of civil and criminal penalties for violations of visitation
- Prohibition of removing the child from any location without the permission
of the court
- Reviewing reasons for possible abduction, including previous attempts,
threats of domestic abuse, stalking, activities of planned abduction,
or dependency and neglect
- Other considerations, including the age of the child, the potential harm
to the child from abduction, the legal difficulties of returning the child
