Child Custody & Parenting Time Archives

Which laws govern child custody issues regarding grandparents?

Divorce is seldom easy, and those involving children are often particularly challenging. Colorado parents who divorce often disagree on matters concerning custody and visitation of their children. The court generally believes that children should be provided ample time with both parents following divorce to increase their chances of successfully adapting to new lifestyles. However, in certain circumstances, a parent's presence may be detrimental to children, in which case the court would rule accordingly in the children's best interests.

Think about each child custody decision you have to make

We recently discussed the severity of child custody interference. This is something that can have a negative impact on the child, so parents would be wise to avoid this issue. This isn't the only issue that can come up in a child custody case. There are a host of other issues that can come up.

Child custody interference is a serious legal issue

A child custody order is the backbone of what should happen with your child when you and the other parent aren't in a relationship any longer. When the other parent doesn't keep up his or her end of the order, there is a chance that custody interference might be occurring.

How to avoid common parenting plan problems when you divorce

You may be one of many Colorado families who will spend this year's summer adapting to a new lifestyle after divorce. As a parent of several children, you're likely experiencing various levels of anxiety regarding your continuing relationship with your former spouse as a co-parent. Even though you chose to untie your marital knot, you know you will always be connected to your former spouse because of your children. The parenting plan horror stories others have told you have you feeling a little nervous about your own future.

Think about your child's future in a child custody case

We recently discussed how adopted children go through the exact same legal process as biological children when their parents divorce. These adopted children might suffer more emotionally because they are facing another life upheaval, especially if they were older when they were adopted.

Know your options for dealing with child custody matters

Child custody cases take the specific points of the case into account. These points include factors like the domestic violence that we discussed in our previous blog posts. When there are circumstances like that at the heart of the child custody case, the court must carefully consider the options that are available for the child.

Special concerns for infant and toddler child custody

Infants and toddlers require a lot of care. These young children thrive on routine and familiarity. This makes it difficult for parents of these young children to come up with a child custody order when the little one's parents aren't living together any longer. There are some specific points that must be addressed in these cases.

Think carefully about how you work out child custody plans

We recently discussed some of the issues that come up for child and spousal support. While many people think that child support and child custody go hand-in-hand, that is somewhat of a misconception. While child custody and child support are both important, being able to see your child's doesn't depend on whether you pay child support. We aren't saying that you shouldn't pay, but we are noting that you can still spend time with your child even if you aren't able to pay.

Addiction can impact parental rights

Most people know or at least suspect when someone close has an addiction. Maybe your spouse's addiction was the main reason your marriage ended. Raising children with a drug addict or alcoholic can be frustrating and frightening because mind-altering substances can make a person undependable or even dangerous.
