Protecting “The Best Interests of the Child”

Fort Collins CO Children legal issuesChildren’s legal issues can be extremely challenging. At Kraemer, Golden and O’Brien we take great care to examine your individual case needs. We will look such factors as age of the child or children, their emotional attachments to each parent, the parents ability to care and look out for the welfare of their children. These and many more factors are weighed in to determine the best possible solution for you and your family members .

Decision Making Responsibilities

People often refer to “custody” of children In Colorado, we do not use the term “custody” but “decision making responsibility”. This means the court is required to allocate responsibility fro major decisions in the children’s lives to one parent or both parents. The decision as how to allocate decision making responsibility is determined by the parties’ ability to communicate, the age of the children and other factors.

As your family law attorney, our desire is to achieve allocation of decision making responsibility in the best interest of your children, whether by litigation in court or a negotiated settlement.

Parenting Time

Parenting time can also be referred to as “visitation” is part of a court order that outlines the conditions of the non-custodial parents rights to see and visit his or her child. When legal custody is given to one parent, then the other parent must follow the visitation order as set forth by the court. If you are experiencing visitation issues, it is in your best interest to seek the support and guidance our experienced family law attorneys.
