Colorado parents put children first in child custody matters

Any Colorado parent who has been through a divorce understands how challenging it can be. Among all of the issues that need to be dealt with during the divorce process, child custody is most likely at the top of the list. Despite the potential obstacles, more parents than ever are putting their children first when discussing parenting arrangements.

No one gets married anticipating that they will divorce despite the alarming percentage of marriages that do end in the United States. Sadly, however, many couples will reach the conclusion that they are simply not suited to spend the rest of their lives with each other. By this time, the couple may have children.

At this point, the parents have a choice. They can fight over custody, which is ordinarily more about the parents than the children, or they can choose to put aside their feelings about each other in favor of doing what is best for the children. The parties may not like each other, but more often than not, they have no complaints about each other as parents. It is this fact that deserves the parties' attention during the divorce.

Negotiating child custody arrangements does not have to be contentious. Despite the end of the marital relationship, the parental relationship does not end when the divorce is final. There will still be birthdays, holidays and other special events that the children want both parents to attend. Colorado couples can use the divorce process to set some ground rules and lay a foundation for a post-divorce relationship that allows them to continue being the best parents they can be to their children.
