Colorado courts will consider the "best interests of the child" in every Colorado divorce, legal separation, annulment, or paternity case involving children -  to determine Colorado child custody and visitation (in Colorado the term is "parenting rights and responsibilities"). Family law for child custody in Colorado is "gender-neutral" between the mother and father, meaning that under Colorado child custody laws, each parent theoretically has an equal opportunity of obtaining primary residential responsibility.

However, the reality of parenting time in Colorado is still that mothers tend to win more "custody battles" than fathers, but the options and opportunities for fathers are more equal and getting better now more than ever before. The advantages mothers have are typically more a factor that they are more likely to have stayed at home or worked fewer hours than fathers.  The younger the children are, the more likely it is that the children will spend a majority of the time with one parent, rather than equally.

We specialize in all areas of Child Custody, including:

  • Best Interests of the Child
  • "Typical" Parenting Schedules
  • Parental advantages (for either mother or father)
  • and all other vital aspects of Child Custody
