At Vario Law Group, our attorney brings 20 years of legal experience with which to help you protect your child's best interests and future.
When deciding child custody, the court will look at the best interest of the child, but they have precious little time to decide what that means. As a parent, you want to make sure you have a lawyer who takes the time to understand you, your goals, and what your child's well-being requires. With the right lawyer, you can effectively negotiate with the other parent to agree on what's best for your child, else you can build a strong case to help a judge understand what your child needs from the parenting time court order.

How Is Child Custody Determined in Colorado?
Colorado courts will determine child custody based on the best interest of the child. This means the court will take into consideration the child's physical, emotional, and developmental needs. The court will also look at the parents' ability to care for the child and the parents' willingness to facilitate and encourage a close relationship between the child and the other parent.
The court will also take into consideration factors including and not limited to:
- The child's health & safety
- The child's developmental & social needs
- The parents' ability to provide economic stability for the child
- The child's preference, if old enough to express a preference
- Any history of domestic violence
Most family courts favor shared parenting when possible, but the final decision will be based on the best interest of the child. A parenting plan is a detailed schedule that outlines the child's living and time-sharing schedule. The parenting plan will include information on how the child will be communicated between the parents and how the parents will make decisions on the child's healthcare and education. The parenting plan will also include information on how the parents will communicate with each other, how the child will be transported between the parents, and how issues will be resolved if the parents disagree.
