What is the significance of legal custody?

Children are unique beings that have different needs from their parents. When two parents go through a divorce the careful balance that they have created to provide stability for their children may be upset by the turmoil in their relationship. When Colorado families are pulled apart due to divorce, children can be left with uncertainty in their lives.

When is sole custody ordered in family law cases?

Every child custody and family law case is based on different facts and will involve children who have different needs. The best interests of one Colorado child may vary greatly from those of another, and for that reason individual custody cases receive their own consideration and review. The information contained in this post is informational in nature and should not be used by readers as legal advice.

Physical custody is only one aspect of parental responsibilities

Losing daily facetime with one's child can be the hardest aspect of divorce or separation for a Colorado parent. An individual may be used to picking their child up from school each day and having time to love and communicate with them in the comfort of their own home. When the end of a marriage threatens a parent's capacity to be with their child, they may worry about how they will maintain their connection with their kid.

Could your kids benefit from post-divorce nesting?

It is important that readers of this Colorado family law blog understand that no one strategy for caring for kids following a divorce will work for everyone. In fact, different families may need to employ highly variable and unique plans to ensure that their children are provided with what they need to thrive. The best interests of the children should guide child custody and parental visitation cases in our state's courts, but one highly unique form of child-sharing following a divorce is emerging as a potential means of protecting children's emotional health.

Unmarried fathers, child custody and visitation

Sometimes when a child in Colorado is born to unmarried parents who are no longer in a relationship with one another, it may be assumed that the child's mother will receive primary parental responsibilities, also known as child custody. However, unmarried fathers can also seek parental responsibilities or parenting time, also known as visitation. There are certain steps that must be completed in order to do so.

Seeking solutions to child custody issues in Colorado

When a child's parents divorce, the child's best interests should be met above all else. Divorce is not an easy time for a child. They will have to become accustomed to living in two homes, and they may experience a range of emotions, from confusion to sadness to fear. Parents should do all they can to comfort their child throughout the divorce process, despite any animosity they may have for one another.

Parents in Colorado can plan for the school year post-divorce

Summer has come and gone, and children across Colorado are going back to school. While this can be an exciting time of year for some children, for children whose parents are divorced going back to school can be stressful. It is important for divorced parents to work together to set their child up for success in school.

How does divorce affect a parent's ability to relocate?

Summertime is a popular time for parents to move, as it means that their child will have time to adjust to their new home before the school year starts. However, when parents are divorced, moving is not as simple as packing up your things and taking off for your new home. If there is a child custody and parental visitation order in place, the parent that wants to move may need to seek a modification of the order first.

Colorado parenting in the summer, post-divorce

Summer is here and for children in Colorado whose parents have divorced, summer may mean that a child custody and parental visitation schedule will be followed that is different from the one followed in the school year. For example, during the school year, one parent may have custody of the child on weekdays, and the other parent may have visitation every-other weekend. However, oftentimes in the summer the noncustodial parent will have an extended period of visitation with the child, such as one month. In addition, both parents may want to take the child on a vacation that differs from their normal custody and visitation periods. It is important, then, to ensure any changes to a custody and visitation plan are lawful, in order to avoid unwanted surprises and conflicts.
