Is Sole Custody More Likely To Be Granted To One Parent?
In Colorado, each parent as long as they don't otherwise have some kind of a problem, including a drug problem or an alcohol problem or having gone through a domestic violence case, stands relatively equal with the court. Once upon a time it used to be that the mother would have higher rights towards parenting time with the children, and in Colorado the courts have really switched towards having parents stand equally on obtaining parental rights and only in the case of a very young child would you have one parent outweigh another one. In colorado, everyone stands equal in obtaining parental
responsibilities, and it's really based on the best interest of the children and the circumstances of each party in determining what is the right parental relationship for your child. If you're going through a divorce or an allocation of parental responsibilities case, we would be happy to help you here at Miller & Steiert.
