Kyle McFarlane Featured in Law Week Colorado

An opinion piece by BAM partner Kyle McFarlane has been featured in Law Week Colorado’s annual Family Law special edition.

In the article, “Don’t Say Alienation,” Kyle looks at Kayden’s Law, which seeks to prioritize children’s best interests and protect them from harm in custody cases (in 2023 Colorado became the first state to pass Kayden’s Law).

The article examines how Kayden’s Law rejects the concept of “alienation,” where the non-custodial parent could accuse the custodial parent of “alienation’” and have the child removed.
Kyle warns, however, that Kayden’s Law is not a perfect solution and has seen unintended consequences that can negatively impact those it was supposed to protect.
