Child Custody And Parenting Time

Child custody is one of the most emotional and feared family law processes. Nothing is as important as the bond shared between parent and child.

So when it comes time for child custody to be determined, parents have many concerns and questions.

At Scardina Law, we offer legal representation and support to parents who are facing child custody and parenting plan determinations. We represent divorcing spouses as well as unmarried parents.

Will I Lose My Children?

One of the biggest fears of parents who are getting a divorce is losing access to their children:

  • What if my ex-spouse tries to get full custody?
  • What if my ex-spouse tries to restrict my access to our children?
  • What are my chances of getting custody?
  • Are males less likely than females to get custody?

Before you let fear and emotions take over, it is important to understand the facts. Colorado family courts recognize the importance of both parents playing an active role in the life of a child. A 50-50 split in custody is not presumed to be the best approach, as each case is considered on its own merits.

And while in the past mothers were often presumed to be the best suited for full physical custody, this is no longer the case. The courts recognize that fathers, just as mothers, deserve to play an important role in the life of the child.

We understand how difficult and emotional these matters can be. We aim to provide you with facts and objective advice as you proceed.

Setting Parents Up for Cooperation Going Forward

As family law attorneys, we know that legal issues that affect children don't end once the final court determination is made. Parents are tied to each other for life, as they work together to raise their children.

As your family law attorneys, we are here to support you as you plan for your children's futures. It may seem difficult or impossible to work cooperatively with your ex now. But as you move forward, and as your children grow, you can establish a cooperative relationship with your ex for the benefit of your children.

Allocations of Parental Rights and Responsibility for Unmarried Parents

Whether married or not, all parents have rights and responsibilities with their children. We routinely represent unmarried parents in:

  • Child custody and parenting time cases
  • Paternity cases
  • Child support matters

If you are an unmarried mother or father who is seeking help in an important legal matter, please contact us to find out how we can help.
