Choosing to dissolve a marriage can be a difficult decision that may require a fair amount of thought, especially if kids are involved. Parents in Colorado generally consider the well-being of their kids to be of the utmost importance, and seek to protect them from harm. When weighing the options concerning child custody, this could lead some parents to wonder if staying together for the sake of the kids is the best option available.

Man jailed for not following child custody court rules

Moving through a custody battle can be a harrowing experience. For some Colorado parents, it is also incredibly frustrating and emotional. Throughout the process, all parties must adhere to the rules laid out by the child custody court. Failure to do so can result in negative consequences, as one father from a different state recently found. 

Chris Pratt seeks joint child custody in divorce with Anna Farris

Many Colorado fans of Chris Pratt and Anna Farris were sad to learn of their separation earlier this year. Unfortunately, it appears as if a reconciliation is not in their future. Both have recently filed for divorce and reportedly many legal discussions are being discussed such as an agreement on child custody, addressing their prenuptial agreement and property division.

What does terrorism have to do with child custody?

In the vast majority of cases in Colorado and elsewhere, terrorism plays no role in the average custody battle. However, a recent child custody case in another state has received widespread media attention. The mother in the case claims that her former husband is radicalizing their son and promoting drastic anti-American viewpoints.

Drug or alcohol abuse could impact child custody determinations

For Colorado spouses who've lived with a partner's addiction for many years, divorce can feel like a welcome breath of fresh air. For those who share children with their soon-to-be ex, however, it is important to understand that drug and alcohol addiction does not necessarily eliminate the other parent's child custody rights. This is a matter that courts approach on a case-by-case basis, so it's important to construct a solid legal argument to ensure a favorable outcome.

An unusual and deeply disturbing case is making headlines in Colorado and across the nation.

One state separates matters of divorce and child custody

When a Colorado resident goes through divorce, that process is handled through a specific court that focuses on family law matters.

Public outrage and numerous legal challenges have led to a change in that policy.

How to choose the best possible child custody attorney

As Colorado parents prepare to divorce, there are a number of factors that must be considered. For those who share one or more children, child custody will likely play a central role throughout the divorce process. Choosing the right attorney to complete a child custody case is important, and is a decision that can have a lasting impact on everyone involved.

Jurisdiction is critical in child custody cases

For Colorado parents who anticipate a difficult custody battle, taking a carefully considered approach is the best way to achieve a favorable outcome. For some, that includes making strategic decisions concerning where to file their child custody case. For parents who have the opportunity to file in different jurisdictions, it is important to research those options prior to making a decision.
