How Child Custody Is Decided in Colorado
In uncontested cases, two parents can arrange their own parenting agreement outside of the courtroom and present their final decision to a family law judge to be entered. In contested cases, the parents must pursue litigation, and a family law judge will make the final decision.
If a court must decide child custody, it will examine several factors:
- How old the child is: Children 12 or older can often voice their wishes
- Each parent's home: location is one major factor
- How each parent helps the child maintain their relationship with the other parent
- The strength of each parent-child relationship
- Each parent's lifestyle and its stability
- Any history of neglect or domestic abuse
The court always makes decisions based on the best interests of the child, which means you will need to present a strong case in your favor, if you desire to win custody of your child. Our child custody lawyers can provide the relentless and aggressive representation you need in order to get results.
