Tips for Colorado parents trying to determine child custody

When two parents are not raising their children together, it may be for a myriad of reasons. Both people involved typically want what is best for their kids, but may not agree on exactly how that should be accomplished. In these instances, they may have to determine the exact parameters of a child custody agreement. Colorado parents may benefit from the following suggestions when they are faced with such a situation.

Colorado prenups are about the future rather than divorce

Many couples here in Colorado believe that a prenuptial agreement demonstrates a mistrust of one's partner and casts a pessimistic tone over the marriage. While it is true that prenups are used for advanced planning of a possible divorce, they are also a way for each spouse to protect any assets to which they may be entitled. They can be of particular use for people who have accumulated a significant amount of assets prior to marriage.

Sherri Shepherd's husband seeks child custody of unborn baby

Normally, when a Colorado couple divorces and has to make decisions related to the custody of their children, it involves children who are already born. Occasionally, it actually refers to an unborn child. Such is the case in the divorce proceedings for TV personality and actress Sherri Shepherd. Her husband recently filed for divorce and is suing for child custody of their baby, who is being carried by a surrogate.

Could medical marijuana in Colorado impact child custody?

Though recreational marijuana was recently legalized here in Colorado, those who have a prescription for it are subject to different guidelines. Those restrictions dictate how much a person can legally possess and under what circumstances he or she is allowed to use the drug. Those who are navigating a child custody case will want to be aware that a judge may be negatively influenced by marijuana usage, even if the consumption is for medical reasons.
