At Wick & Trautwein, LLC, we understand the importance of protecting the best interests of your children when you are facing family law issues. Whether you are going through a divorce or have parenting plan issues that need to be worked out, we can help. We will explain what options you have and how we can help to protect your rights and your children’s best interests.
Factors In Child Custody Decisions
In Colorado, terms such as joint custody, sole custody and visitation are rarely used anymore. The newer laws describe parenting plans and decision-making roles. These plans are based around protecting the best interests of all children involved. Our attorneys are familiar with the many factors a judge will look at to determine the best interests of a child, including:
- The child’s relationship with each parent
- Criminal records and each parent’s history with violence
- The child’s ability to adjust to new schools and communities
- The child’s preferences
- How long the child has been in one school, community and home
- Each parent’s willingness to ensure the child has a relationship with the other parent
In certain instances, there can be significant changes in your schedule and your life that will affect the best interests of your children. You could lose a job, incur large medical expenses or have other incidents occur that require a modification of your custody and parenting time agreement. You can rely on our skilled legal team to find answers that work for your family.
