Parental Responsibilities

In Colorado, child custody is referred to as allocation of parental responsibilities. Not only does this address the amount of time children spend with each parent, it also takes into account which parent and to what extent each makes important decisions in the child’s life.

Managing the time your child spends with you and your former spouse can be one of the most stressful aspects of your divorce. You want what is best for your child, which in most cases is time with each parent, but it can be difficult to put aside your negative feelings. Even if things are relatively civil between you and your ex, scheduling a parenting time schedule can still be a frustrating experience. In addition to your child’s best interests, you must also take into account yours and your former spouse’s schedule.

Being a divorced family has its challenges, but understanding your rights and putting your child’s best interest first makes it easier. This is true as you transition into divorce, as well as after your divorce is final and your child is spending time separately with you and your former spouse. Laws regarding child visitation are designed to protect children and help families make the best of a less-than-ideal situation. As a divorced parent, it is your responsibility to understand these laws and do your best to ensure the arrangement you agreed to or were given in court is followed.
