Child Custody Archives

Courts are more likely to support shared child custody today

Over the past 30 years, there has been a dramatic shift in society in many areas, including divorce and parenting. One of the more positive shifts has been that more and more courts in Colorado and elsewhere are more inclined to start with the presumption that shared child custody is preferable in the majority of cases. This change has been welcomed by dads who desire to help raise their children.

Utilizing the Hague Convention to get your kids back

Should your foreign-born ex-spouse take your children from their home in Colorado for a visit to another country and then fail to return them to you on time, you may be able to get help via the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. Signed by the United States and 97 other nations back in 1980, this international treaty provides the mechanism by which children residing in one member country whose parent abducts them to another member country can be expeditiously returned to their country of "habitual residence."

Fathers can seek fair treatment in child support and custody

Statistically, mothers are awarded primary custody approximately 80 percent of the time.

The prospect of being separated from a child is a difficult one for parents. However, during a child custody dispute, most parents realize that they cannot be with their child all of the time, especially in a shared custody arrangement. The vast majority of Colorado parents can endure these brief separations, as it is usually in the child's best interest to spend time with each parent.
