What The Law Says About Child Custody And Parenting Plans
The state of Colorado presumes, absent any contradictory evidence, that both parents can and should raise their children. The courts believe that children thrive when both parents are active participants in their lives and we agree. Our experience has shown that cooperative parenting results in happier children, and subsequently, happier parents.
In the state of Colorado, a court uses 24 factors to create a parental responsibilities plan that will serve the children’s emotional and physical needs. At all times, the court’s concern is the welfare of the children. In a sense, this is the premium factor that informs the others. We will help you understand these factors and honestly evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in providing them to their children.
If you are forthright, parental responsibilities can be determined between yourselves without the court’s intervention. Ultimately, this is the most expeditious and auspicious route, as we tend to abide by agreements that we create, rather than by ones that are created for us.
