Montana judges smack down parental rights

Montana is not Colorado but its close.

This story should chill you particularly if your a parent.

What a Montana court has done is stand on its head the right of natural parents to have sole claim on their child. Instead, there is legal precedence for third parties to make a parenting claim on a child.

This is not new news in Colorado. Colorado law allows an individual (non-parent) to petition for parental responsibilities when he or she has had physical care of the child for at least six months.

What we object to is a court determining that a non-parent's claims to parenting time trumps those of a fit natural parent...

This is a bad decision that needs to be overturned.
