Colorado Supreme Court: Grandparents and Relatives Allowed to Intervene in D&N Action Without 3-Month Time-Period Limitation

The Colorado Supreme Court issued its opinion in People in Interest of O.C. on Monday, September 9, 2013.

Dependency and Neglect—CRS § 19-3-507(5)(a).

In this dependency and neglect case, the Supreme Court held that CRS § 19-3-507(5)(a) permits parents, grandparents, and relatives to intervene as a matter of right. The Court further held that the statute’s three-month requirement does not apply to parents, grandparents, or relatives. The Court therefore affirmed the judgment of the court of appeals.
