How Custody is Decided in Boulder County

Under Colorado statute, the common term most people use, “custody,” has been replaced with “parental responsibility,” which entails not only visitation and primary residence, but also the legal right to make major decisions for a child. Absent any physical or emotional harm to the child, judges across Colorado tend to gravitate towards allocating custodial rights between parents as equally as possible, but every situation is unique. The main issues that can negatively affect a custody case tend to be domestic violence, drug or alcohol problems, and mental health concerns. Colorado statute (C.R.S. 14-10-123) also allows for people other than the parents to seek custody in certain situations.

The courts will examine evidence to determine what custody arrangement would be in the best interests of the child. In any case, each party should gather and present evidence to support their claim. Witnesses or documentation that show you are an involved, available, and appropriate parent will be helpful. This evidence must be relevant to the specifics of your case. Likewise, it may be necessary to present evidence of any concerns you may have regarding the other parent’s abilities to effectively and safely parent. An experienced Boulder County custody attorney will be able to sift through all possible evidentiary support for your case and present it in an organized, persuasive manner to the court. Our attorneys are equally skilled at negotiating appropriate child custody settlements and ensuring the detail you need for a good parenting schedule is included.

At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties.
I highly recommend Stephen Plog for anyone in need of a top notch domestic relations attorney. After a 27 year marriage, Stephen represented me in a complicated and sometimes bitter divorce with many unique challenges. At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties but limited my alimony payments to only 3 years. He is smart, cuts to the chase, knows the court system in the Denver metropolitan area and can be trusted to get his clients the best possible settlement.
