Child Custody & Parenting Time Archives

Parental alienation: What is it?

Simply put, parental alienation occurs when one parent plots to negatively affect the other parent's relationship with the children. In many cases, it comes about because one parent is still upset with the other about things that happened in the marriage or divorce and is using the child as a pawn to upset the other parent.

What rights do Colorado grandparents have?

Too often, part of the collateral damage of a couple's divorce is their children's relationship with their grandparents. Of course, there are other situations like death, incarceration and illness that can tear families apart and leave grandparents fighting for the right to have custody or even just visitation, with their grandchildren.

Preparing for a stepparent adoption

While many families have difficulties at first adjusting to the changing dynamic when a new stepparent comes into the house, others find that things are working out so well they begin to consider the idea of a stepparent adoption. Before moving forward on this path, however, it's important to understand the requirements that must be met as well as how to tell if this is a good choice for your particular situation.

Back-to-school season is a time for parents to come together

With Labor Day behind us, it is time to turn out attention to the school season. This means changes in schedules and different needs for children. Even though your children have likely already started school, it isn't too late for you and your child's other parent to start working out the finer details about parenting during the school.

Parental responsibility cases aren't always cut-and-dry

When it comes to divorce, issues dealing with the children are some of the most difficult to work through. These parental responsibility issues often pit the wishes of one parent against the wishes of the other parent. In some cases, the parents are able to negotiate an agreement that puts the child's interests first. That is the ultimate goal when we take on a child custody issue -- we want what is best for the child.

Which religion will my child be brought up in?

For many families, religious beliefs are some of the most deeply held tenants of their lives, and it's normally taken for granted that children will grow up in the religion of their parents. However, if the parents are divorced or were never married and subscribe to different religions, it can make this much more complicated.

Parenting plans are often complex but must be followed

Discussing parenting time and similar issues when you are going through a divorce can often lead to considerable issues between you and your child's other parent. Just last week, we discussed how some child custody cases might involve allegations of abuse. Issues like that can often make the child custody issues even more pronounced.

Child custody: Allegations of abuse

Accusations of child abuse are extremely serious, but it is not uncommon for divorcing spouses to try to argue that the other parent is abusive to gain custody. In some cases, the allegations are unfounded, and the courts will not look favorably on a parent who lies or otherwise misrepresents the facts in a custody hearing. If, on the other hand, the allegations are true, there may be an investigation by child protective services, and the results are very likely to factor heavily into the court's final decision.

Girls returned to United States after international abduction

Family custody issues can lead to many problems for divorced parents. In some cases, those who don't like the outcome of a court ruling could decide to leave with their children, essentially restricting one parent's right to see his children. That's what had happened in this case that has, for now, been resolved.
