Child Custody A Fresh, Modern Approach to Law

Child Custody Lawyers in Centennial, CO

Compassionate & Competent Legal Help for Parents in the Denver AreaParent with custody of child

As parents, your children are likely your top priority when going through a divorce. And that is as it should be. The fallout from divorce, separation, or any family law dispute is often the hardest and most damaging to children who have little understanding of and no control over the situation.

At the Law Office of Alexandra White, PC, we are especially sensitive to the needs of children in any divorce, separation, or paternity case. We understand the importance of the deep emotional connection between parents and the children and have earned a reputation for strong advocacy of parental rights. At this critical time, we believe there is no substitute for trusted and capable legal guidance in creating a parenting plan that is fair and just for the entire family. Ideally, your child will have a continuing and meaningful relationship with both parents and, through diligence, we can help in creating a workable resolution that is in the best interests of your child.

Child Custody Laws in Colorado

Under Colorado law, the term "child custody" has been changed to "parenting responsibilities," which involve:

  • Legal responsibility, such as decision-making about the child’s welfare, health, education, and other important areas of life
  • Parenting time, usually creating a schedule of time spent between the parents’ separate households

These factors can be split jointly or can be assigned on a separate basis. However, except in the most extreme cases involving domestic violence, child abuse, or substance abuse, courts favor a child spending some time with both parents. Parenting time may be divided equally or non-equally depending on the circumstances of the situation. The parent whom the child spends the most time with is often referred to as the “custodial” parent while the other parent is referred to as “noncustodial” parent with “visitation rights.”

These factors will apply to parents going through a divorce as well as to unmarried parents involved in an allocation of parental responsibilities case in the courts.
