When there is upset in your Colorado household of any kind, likely the top priority is the welfare of your children. Regardless of if it has involved any children, domestic violence taking place in a home could impact the kids for the rest of their lives. Families who are dealing with such disputes may be interested to learn about the options regarding child custody, if they feel they want to exit such an environment.

One Colorado house was recently the subject of a domestic violence response by authorities. Officials reportedly went to the home and discovered both ammunition and a gun eventually, but no one was harmed. Inside the home were three children and a woman, whom the officials reportedly were able to safely retrieve. The man was later taken to the hospital and reports indicated that he may have been impaired with drugs in his system or affected by the cold.

While it is reported that no charges were made against this man or that any harm had come to the woman and children in the home, other families in Colorado who are familiar with similar circumstances may be thinking about the effects of such trauma on their children. If there is a wish to go about separating yourself and your children from a potentially dangerous person in your home or their other parent, the help of a family law attorney may be able to offer some insight.

Colorado residents who are interested in learning about how to go about reassessing the custody of their children could seek out legal counsel and discuss the options on such matters. While not every situation of child custody deals with matters of potential domestic disputes, they all are working for the best interests of the children and having an experienced legal representative with you could help to put your best presentation forward.
