When parents in Colorado are divorcing, they may turn to the court to make child custody decisions if they cannot reach an agreement on their own. Child custody decisions in Colorado are made based on the best interests of the child. Using this standard, Colorado courts will dictate which parent(s) have the right to make decisions on behalf of the child and with which parent(s) the child will reside.
In a perfect world, if a parent is ordered to pay child support, all payments will be made in full and on time. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world, and some parents in Colorado fail to meet their child support obligations. When this happens, the spouse receiving child support has options for obtaining the amount of support they are owed.
Many married business owners in Colorado got their start as a young couple with little more than a great idea and an entrepreneurial spirit. They may have spent years or even decades cultivating their family business into a successful enterprise. However, sometimes the same thing can't be said for their marriage and married business owners will decide to divorce.
Kids can be unpredictable. This week they’ll only eat hot dogs, next week they want to try sushi. With the constantly-changing whims, it’s not a big surprise when they bring up the idea of changing the custody agreement.
You thought you finally got through it all. The divorce got finalized and the child custody arrangements were made. Just as you and the kids were settling into a new sense of normal, your ex announces a trip to take the kids on vacation.
