Child custody: When a change in life prompts a need to relocate

There are certain circumstances in life that may prompt a need for a change of scenery. Unfortunately for some, relocating to a different area might not be as simple as finding a new place to live. For parents in Colorado, a need to relocate could also bring about a need to pursue modifications to an existing child custody agreement. Since a similar process can be complex, a parent may find it beneficial to seek guidance from someone with experience in such matters.

Addressing the necessary topics during child custody negotiations

When married couples decide to take separate paths in life, they may face a variety of difficult choices. If there are kids involved, parents may consider it vital to protect their futures by reaching a parenting plan that is in keeping with their needs.

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.
