Child custody rights not guaranteed for same-sex couples

Now that the Supreme Court has settled the issue of same-sex marriage, many couples have settled into a happy state of married life. For some, adding to their family was a priority, and artificial insemination is a popular option to meet that goal. Unfortunately, same-sex parents in Colorado and elsewhere still face legal challenges when it comes to securing a parental link with their children. That has resulted in child custody issues and other legal matters that seek to extend the same parental rights to same-sex parents that are given to heterosexual couples.

Could "nesting" be the next big child custody trend?

For Colorado parents who are divorcing and looking through their custody options, there are a number of different choices to evaluate and potential avenues to pursue. Those options are a good thing, as families have the ability to find a child custody solution that meets their particular set of needs. There are a number of creative options that are available, including a practice that has come to be known as "nesting."

Research supports shared child custody approach

Faced with the need to divide parenting time and responsibilities, many Colorado parents are unsure where to begin. No loving parent wants to be separated from his or her child for any period of time, much less to assume the role of part-time parent. Fortunately, there are a number of different options available for parents who are willing to work toward a solution that is in the best interests of all parties. Shared child custody is one of those options and is an approach that is supported by a significant body of research.

Alex Jones of InfoWars asks to set aside child custody verdict

Some Colorado readers are familiar with the work of Alex Jones, the man behind the controversial website known as InfoWars. The site has made headlines over extreme claims and dubious conspiracy theories, some of which played a minor role in the recent presidential election. Jones and his former wife recently appeared in court on a child custody matter, and Alex Jones was unsuccessful in his efforts to maintain full custody of the couple's three children. Now, Jones has asked the court to set aside the recent jury verdict, prompting his ex-wife to speak out on the matter.

Judge suspended in controversial child custody matter

When it comes to a parent's biggest fear, having their child fall ill or suffer a serious injury is often at the top of that list. Close after that would be losing their right to parent their child, and having a son or daughter removed from their home. While this outcome may seem unlikely for most parents, it is important to understand that a child custody matter can quickly change direction, and can have unintended and unexpected results, in Colorado or elsewhere.

Child custody matter has unusual outcome

When faced with an unconventional lifestyle, many family courts are uncertain how to handle a custody fight. For those in Colorado and across the nation who are raising a child in a non-traditional family, it is important to understand that a child custody matter could have an unpredictable outcome. An example is found in a recent case in which custody rights were divided among three parties.

Child custody matter turns into criminal charges against mother

Custody battles are among the most heated types of court cases, in Colorado and across the nation. When a parent is faced with losing his or her child, emotion often overrules reason. Unfortunately, there is a danger of making rash decisions during this challenging time, and further worsening one's child custody matter. An example is found in a mother who is now facing serious criminal charges after she picked up her daughter in violation of a custody order.

Child Support Termination

In Colorado, a divorce decree with children or paternity judgment may include a Child Support Order ("CSO") that will direct one parent to pay a sum of money to the other parent. The CSO will state when, how often, and how much a parent is required to pay. This blog will discuss the ways in which a CSO can terminate with and without a Court Order and potential roadblocks with the process.

How to handle the holidays and child custody

When a Colorado family is going through divorce, parents can easily become distracted by the stress and turmoil of the process. That can make it easy to overlook the best interests of the children, even for the best of parents. Handling visitation during the holiday season can be a challenge for parents who are in the middle of child custody negotiations. However, facilitating these visits is essential to providing a positive holiday experience for everyone involved.

Child custody matter focused on prostitution

A mother has regained custody of her two children after a lengthy appeals process. The case centered on the mother's decision to temporarily work as a prostitute in a state where prostitution is legal. When her former partner took issue with that decision, a nasty child custody case began, which many in Colorado have followed.
