Child Custody Archives

We assist clients with their child custody and visitation needs

Raising a child is not always easy, but it is an act of the unconditional love a parent in Colorado has for their child. Parents want their children to grow up in a happy and healthy environment. Therefore, should the parents of a child divorce, they may have many questions about their rights to have access to their child so they can maintain a bond with them.

Don't wait to get holiday child custody schedule in order

While some people in Centennial may feel irked to see Christmas decorations for sale in stores before Halloween is even over, for better or worse, the winter holidays will be here before we know it. The holidays always bring with them a certain amount of stress, and this can be especially true if a couple with children has divorced. In fact, divorced parents may be well served to establish a holiday child custody schedule (or review an existing one) sooner, rather than later, to avoid unexpected surprises and conflict.

Is a birdnesting child custody arrangement right for you?

Parents in Colorado going through a divorce may assume that the only outcome is that there will be two separate households, with the child shuttling between homes during custody and visitation periods. However, some parents, recognizing that divorce itself brings big changes to a child's life, want to try to minimize the disruption to the child's life as much as possible. If parents in this situation are able to cooperate very well, they may want to consider an alternative child custody arrangement: birdnesting.

What factors will a court consider in child custody cases?

When parents in Centennial go through a divorce, they may naturally be very concerned about how the process will affect their child and what rights they'll have to their child when the process is finished. While, sometimes, parents are able to work out a parenting plan through negotiations, other times negotiations fail and they need to turn to the court to make child custody decisions. Any parenting time schedules made must first and foremost meet the best interests of the child standard. In determining what the child's best interests are, the court will consider a number of factors.

New app helps parents with scheduling post-divorce

Between soccer games, piano recitals, school plays, birthday parties and everything in between, parents in Colorado understand just how busy life with kids can be. Family life becomes even more complicated, however, if the child's parents divorce. After a divorce, in addition to the child's schooling and extra-curricular activities, parents will need to make arrangements for child custody exchanges, holidays and other events laid out in their parenting plan. This can become very complicated, especially if the parents are not on good terms with one another after their divorce.

What do the courts mean by 'best interests of the child?'

Throughout a divorce, if children are involved, you may hear the courts talk about and consider what they believe to be "the best interests of the children." Many decisions regarding child custody, child support and even property division, specifically concerning who stays in the house, could be made while keeping the best interests of the children in mind. So what exactly do they mean by that term?

How divorcing parents can make life easier on themselves

Indeed, the process of divorce can seem like the worst time of your life. Not only has your marriage not worked out, you may feel like a colossal failure and you may hate your soon-to-be ex-spouse for not putting more energy into the relationship, especially if you are parents. This may lead to a strong sense of animosity and bitterness, but you cannot let it ruin your life.

In unique case, judge grants three-way child custody

When a couple in Denver divorces, deciding who will retain custody of a child is often a heated aspect of the split. Ideally, parents should work together to do what is best for the child so that he or she can lead a happy and healthy life. Sometimes this involves one person solely taking over parenting duties and sometimes it involves splitting parenting responsibilities between the parties.

Will split custody be harmful for my young child?

When dealing with all of the aspects of your Denver divorce, one of the most important things will be how you and your ex co-parent your child. Babies and toddlers need a lot of attention and you may worry about your child’s emotional well-being if he or she is forced to divide time between two households. A new study has found that kids who spent equal time with both parents after a divorce had positive outcomes, according to Live Science.

Non-custodial mothers face harsh stigma

When a couple with children in Denver divorces, family courts often try to arrive at a custody arrangement that keeps both parents involved with their kids as much as possible. Sometimes, the best situation for everyone is for one parent to have custody of the children while the other parent gets visitation.
