Child custody dispute takes a sharper controversial turn

A juvenile court judge in another state has issued a controversial decision over a 15-year-old girl's custody that many predicted would go the other way. The judge ordered that child custody be placed in the state's child welfare services agency instead of her parents. He appears to have made the decision possibly on reasons other than the child's best interests. The best interest of the child test is the governing standard applied in Colorado and all other states to decide who should get child custody in a contested case.

Property division planning may include inherited property

When couples make the decision to divorce, it is never a simple course of action. There are many things to think about, such as the responsibility for child care, spousal support issues and property division. Colorado families may not be aware that, if their children divorce, it can affect any of their own property that they plan to give to their children and is not properly protected. There are several tips on how to manage the tricky issues surrounding this often difficult time of life.

Father fighting for child custody of daughter placed for adoption

Often, when parents of a child are unmarried, the assumption is made that the main responsibility for child care will fall to the mother. However, many Colorado fathers are more than willing to step up and raise their children, even asking for primary custody in many situations. In the past, many courts would favor the mother in child custody cases, but in recent times, many men have shown that they are able and sometimes even better suited to care for their children. A father recently found out that he has been given a chance to have primary custody of the daughter that his ex-girlfriend gave up for adoption, allegedly without his permission.

Parental responsibilities include college in Colorado divorces

When parents make the decision to divorce, they know they will have to make decisions on custody and visitation for their young children. What some parents here in Colorado may not think of is how they will determine who pays for certain expenses in their children's futures. For instance, they may not consider who will pay for their college educations and how that will be accomplished. Experts have recommendations on how to navigate this and determine the parental responsibilities of each person involved.
