The most important concern for any family going through divorce in Colorado is what will happen to the children. How do you decide what is in the best interests of the child? What determines who has been the primary parent of the child? What will your overnight schedule with the kids cost you?
Child Custody is also known as the allocation of parental responsibility in Colorado. The family law attorneys of Teddi Ann Barry, PC can help you determine what parenting plan or child custody situation is best for your family.
You must hire a family law attorney to understand and use the 11 factors of the Colorado Revised Statute §14-10-124 to your advantage and pursuit of your parental rights. To determine the best interests of the children, families and the Court must consider the following factors:
(I) The wishes of the child’s parents as to parenting time;
(II) The wishes of the child if he or she is sufficiently mature to express reasoned and independent preferences as to the parenting time schedule;
(III) The interaction and interrelationship of the child with his or her parents, his or her siblings, and any other person who may significantly affect the child’s best interests;
(IV) The child’s adjustment to his or her home, school, and community;
(V) The mental and physical health of all individuals involved, except that a disability alone shall not be abasis to deny or restrict parenting time;
(VI) The ability of the parties to encourage the sharing of love, affection, and contact between the child and the other party;
(VII) Whether the past pattern of involvement of the parties with the child reflects a system of values, time commitment, and mutual support;
(VIII) The physical proximity of the parties to each other as this relates to the practical considerations of parenting time;
(IX) Whether one of the parties has been a perpetrator of child abuse or neglect under section 18-6-401,C.R.S., or under the law of any state, which factor shall be supported by credible evidence;
(X) Whether one of the parties has been a perpetrator of domestic violence, which factor shall be supported by a preponderance of the evidence;
(XI) The ability of each party to place the needs of the child ahead of his or her own needs.

Paternity: Not being legally married to the mother or father of your child or to the person with whom you are expecting a child poses some challenges. Both of these reasons are major reasons to hire counsel to help you. You need to have a parenting plan, so the child’s other parent does not try to take the child from you if the relationship ends. These can be specific and detailed or very general depending on your circumstances. READ MORE
