Colorado Child Custody Laws

In Colorado, child custody is referred to as parental responsibilities. There are two types of parental responsibilities: decision-making and parenting time. Decision-making refers to the ability to make important decisions for the child, such as where they will go to school, what religion they will be raised in, and what medical treatment they will receive. Parenting time refers to the time a child spends with each parent.

Colorado courts encourage parents to come to a custody agreement on their own. However, if the parents cannot come to an agreement, the court will make a decision based on the “best interests of the child.”

How Do Courts Determine Child Custody in Colorado?

When determining the best interests of the child, the court will consider a number of factors, including:

  • The child’s wishes, if they are old enough to express a preference
  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • The child’s adjustment to their home, school, and community
  • The mental and physical health of all individuals involved
  • Any history of domestic violence or child abuse

Colorado law does not give preference to either the mother or the father. The court will make a decision based on the best interests of the child, regardless of the parent’s gender.

Once the court has made a decision, it will issue a parenting plan. This plan will outline the parental responsibilities of each parent, as well as the parenting time schedule. If circumstances change, the parenting plan can be modified. However, the court will only modify a parenting plan if it is in the best interests of the child.

How to Win a Child Custody Case

In a child custody case, the court will make a decision based on the best interests of the child. If you want to win your case, you need to show the court that you are the best parent to meet your child’s needs.

Here are some tips to help you win your child custody case:

  • Be a good parent. The court will consider your relationship with your child and your ability to provide for their needs. Be sure to spend time with your child and be involved in their life. Attend school events, extracurricular activities, and doctor’s appointments. Make sure your home is a safe and nurturing environment.
  • Be involved in your child’s life. The court will consider your relationship with your child and your ability to provide for their needs. Be sure to spend time with your child and be involved in their life. Attend school events, extracurricular activities, and doctor’s appointments. Make sure your home is a safe and nurturing environment.
  • Do not say negative things about your ex. The court wants to see that you are willing to work with the other parent. Do not say negative things about your ex in front of your child or on social media. If you have concerns about the other parent’s ability to care for your child, bring them to the attention of the court.
  • Do not violate the court’s orders. If you have a temporary parenting plan, be sure to follow it. Do not keep your child from the other parent, even if you believe it is in their best interests. If you violate the court’s orders, it could hurt your chances of winning your case.
  • Get help from a child custody lawyer. Child custody cases can be complicated. You need a lawyer who can help you build a strong case. An experienced child custody attorney in Erie can help you gather the evidence you need to show the court that you are the best parent to meet your child’s needs.

If you are involved in a child custody matter, it is important to get legal advice as soon as possible. A child custody lawyer in Erie can help you understand your rights and work to achieve a favorable outcome in your case.

    Amanda Peek and Scott Goldstone are the absolute best in Colorado!!!! I could not ask for better attorneys. Thank you everyone on the Peek Goldstone team for all of the hard work you do. You all are awesome! Mr. Scott Goldstone has been my attorney since 2015. During the storms I have had to go through in order to have a relationship with my son, Scott has flawlessly guided and advised me through it all. I had the chance to work with Amanda as well, and she is just as wonderful as Scott. I would not be where I am at today with my son if it wasn't for Scott and Amanda. Thank you both so much for everything you have done and are continuing to do for my son and I. I am very grateful to have the both of you in my life. A huge shout out to all of the paralegals and other staff members working for the law office of Peek Goldstone. Everytime I call the office, you are very professional and helpful!

    "I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone"
    Having received poor advice from a different law office and attorney, I was feeling distressed due to the criminal charges made against me. Seeing an ad for Peek Goldstone in my local paper, I gave them a call. Right from the initial consultation I knew I had found the right person for the job! Brian Klein treated me with respect and was nothing short of brilliant in his ability to leave no stone unturned in order to represent me in the best possible light. Will you have to pay for his services? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes! I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone for your criminal case.

      Ms. Petrilli handled some of my estate planning by drawing up a “Will” and “Power of Attorney” for me. She did an excellent job of explaining everything up front to me at the initial consultation and interview as to the cost and how the process would be handled. She was very fast and efficient getting the final documents to me. The entire staff were professional and courteous.

      "Amanda didn’t flinch and was willing to get right into working for me."
      I had gone to numerous other divorce/child custody lawyers and they were intimidated by the judge and my ex-wife's attorney. Some attorneys even said they couldn’t help me. Amanda didn’t flinch and was willing to get right into working for me.
