The Factors in a Colorado Child Custody Case

In making a child custody, child time sharing, or child visitation decision, Colorado family law courts use the ‘best interests of the child’ legal standard. This means that courts will make whatever determination is necessary to best protect the child. Courts will consider a child’s physical health, emotional well-being, social development needs. There are many factors that Colorado family law courts consider when making decisions in child custody disputes. Some of the most important factors include:

  • The relationship that each parent has established with the child;
  • The current physical and mental health of each parent;
  • The prior history of demonstrating effective parenting ability;
  • Each parent’s ability to provide a healthy and stable living environment;
  • The parents’ willingness to cooperate in matters of time sharing and visitation;
  • Any past history of misconduct, including domestic violence and substance abuse; and
  • If the child is old enough, their personal desires.

Colorado courts can also consider any other factor that is relevant to resolve the case. While Colorado law presumes that joint custody is in the best interests of a child, courts may award sole custody if the circumstances merit doing so. In a child custody case, you need to be able to present an extremely strong claim. To protect your full parental rights, it is imperative that you work with a top-rated Denver child custody attorney. We can help you prepare your case and prove that you can provide the best environment for your children.
