Child Custody & Parenting Time Archives

Child custody cases are sometimes challenging

Absent parents were our topic last week. This is something that many parents have to deal with. Trying to help their child cope with the absent parent can be challenging. But, there is something even more challenging -- helping the child to cope with the situation if the other parent comes back into the picture.

Absent parents can be challenging for children to understand

Child custody issues are some that are hard for children to deal with. For a child who has lived with both parents for all of his or her life, suddenly not having both parents around can be bad. Some parents have to deal with another element that happens after the divorce -- the child's other parent disappears completely.

Protect your right to spend time with your child

The time you spend with your child is precious time during which you can make memories. If you and your child's other parent aren't in a relationship any longer, you might be worried about how you are ever going to be able to spend enough time with your child. The answer to that conundrum is that you can seek a court order for child custody and visitation.

Do you understand the types of child custody?

As you move through the divorce process, you may have many questions pertaining to child custody. It doesn't matter if you have one child with your former spouse or several, you need to know how custody is determined and what you can do to put yourself in a better position.

What You Should Know About Denver Child Custody Law

In Denver, the courts use the term "parental responsibilities," instead of "custody." "Parental responsibilities" covers parenting time and decision-making responsibilities involving children. Deciding the amount of time the child will spend with each parent as well as deciding who will be responsible for making legal decisions for the child is known as "allocation of parental responsibilities."

What if my child has special needs?

When you're divorcing with children, issues like child custody and the visitation schedule take center stage. However, if you have a child with special needs, there may need to be even more care taken than usual to ensure that these decisions are being made in the best interests of the child.

Modifying Child Custody Orders When One Parent Is Moving

When custody for your child was initially determined and established by the courts, it reflected your then-current situation. It is not unusual for things to change over time, however. One common question that arises is whether a custody order can be amended when one parent has a job opportunity that will take them out of their current geographic area permanently. Legally, this is referred to as a "relocation" or "removal" situation.

Parental responsibility and decision making are independent

Child custody matters are usually very complex matters that have the life of an innocent person at the center. When you and your ex have different opinions about what is best for your child, you might have to turn the court for determinations on what will happen with the child. The points that can be addressed in a child custody case can vary greatly depending on the circumstances. We can help you to determine what aspects of child custody should be addressed by your agreement.

Do a child's wishes influence custody?

Child custody issues can be among the most difficult and divisive parts of any divorce proceeding or family law dispute. Often, this means the biological parents of a child working through the court system to determine the distribution of parental responsibilities such as where the child will live, the visitation rights of the non-custodial parent and the child's education. The wishes of the child in these instances are also important to consider.

Child custody conflicts don't have to be huge issues

Every parent has a certain way he or she thinks a child should be raised. Parents who are married or still in a relationship will usually work together to determine how their child should be raised. Parents who aren't in a relationship with each other aren't as likely to be able to work through child raising issues in a productive manner. That is where the child custody agreement comes into the picture.
