What are the major factors in determining parenting time?

Parenting time is an important aspect of all divorce cases involving children. Colorado law accepts that in most cases the best interests of the child are served when there is contact between the child and both parents. As a result, the court will in most cases attempt to create an agreement that maximizes this contact. In all decisions regarding parenting time, the best interests of the child and the child's personal desires are held in paramount importance.

Remedies when parents violate parenting time agreements

Colorado courts allow parents to have joint legal custody of their children if it is in the best interests of the child, and will normally allow visitation time to the parent who does not have primary physical custody. In many cases, the parents are able to come up with a visitation schedule on their own, but in other cases, it is up to the judge to make the determination.

Some information about prenuptial agreements

Colorado couples who are looking forward to their wedding days often have some concerns about whether they should have a prenuptial agreement. While many people have complicated feelings about signing prenuptial agreements, many others enter their marriages more confidently knowing they have taken steps to protect themselves and their assets should problems arise within their relationships.

Reports show the divorce rate may be dropping

Colorado residents may be interested in some of the latest data on the divorce rate in the United States. While many have cited a statistic that around half of marriages end in divorce, trends over the past several decades show signs that the percentage of couples divorcing could be on the decline.

The impact of relocating with a child

When a custodial parent wants to take his or her child from Colorado, the other parent may have the right to object to that relocation. The easiest way for a parent to make sure that the relocation can proceed is to get the express consent of the other parent. Typically, consent is granted as part of the divorce decree and an alternate visitation schedule is laid out in the agreement.

Paternity challenges in Colorado

Paternity can be challenged in Colorado, and there are a number of reasons an individual might wish to do this. Either parent can make this challenge. When a woman who is married has a child, her husband is automatically listed on the birth certificate unless otherwise noted. However, the husband may not necessarily be the father, and this could lead to a paternity challenge.
