How proactive parenting can help during a custody dispute

When Colorado parents are involved in a difficult custody battle, the child or children a the center of the issue are often the ones who are harmed the most. No parent wants to place their child's emotional well-being at risk, but it is easy to get so wrapped up in a bitter child custody dispute that reason and objectivity fall by the wayside. Parents who are able to focus on the needs of their children are far better equipped to navigate custody issues successfully.

Judge has variety of options for child custody in Colorado

When Colorado couples divorce, there are a variety of issues which need to be settled in order for divorcees to continue on with their separate lives. However, when children are involved, this may not be such an easy task. More than likely, the divorced parents will be connected until their children are at least adult age. There are a variety of ways in which a judge can resolve child custody issues during a divorce.

Advice for grandparents involved in a child custody dispute

When an adult child is going through a divorce, it can be difficult for his or her parents to know how to approach the matter. Children need the love and support of their parents, even when they are grown and have families of their own. This is a time full of heavy emotions, and the manner in which parents offer their advice and support during a Colorado divorce and child custody dispute can have a serious impact on their relationship with both their child and their grandparents in the months and years to come.

Parents lose child custody rights over a poppy seed bagel

For Colorado parents, the thought of losing their child is the stuff of nightmares. After all of the time, expense, care and energy placed into our children, having them removed from our care is perhaps the worst experience that a parent can face. One family has recently come through such a child custody ordeal, and their story should serve as a cautionary tale for parents across the nation.

Child custody determination can affect parent/child bond

For Colorado parents who are planning to divorce, no subject is more important than the manner in which they divide their parenting responsibilities. Child custody and visitation are often the first topics addressed during the negotiation period of a divorce, and many parents are able to work out a parenting plan without a great deal of contention. By placing the needs of the children above all other matters, the topic can be handled quickly and effectively, in many cases.

Involved fathers may seek more child custody rights

A newly released research project conducted by Pew Research looks at the ways that fatherhood has changed over the last 50 years. The findings suggest that today's dads are far more involved in childrearing duties than fathers were in decades past. In fact, on average, in 2011 a father typically spent seven hours each week caring for their children, while mothers spent 14. In 1965, fathers only cared for their kids around 2 and a half hours per week, with mothers covering around 10 hours of care. Not only are Colorado dads taking on more responsibilities toward their children, many are also seeking broader child custody rights in the event of a divorce.

Will Colorado's Amendment 64 affect child custody matters?

In November Colorado voters passed Amendment 64, legalizing the possession and consumption of limited amounts of marijuana for adults aged 21 or older. Proponents have said that the costs of marijuana prohibition in the state outweighed the benefits but the change in law has left several questions unanswered. For example, how might a parent's legal marijuana use affect child custody proceedings?
