Best interest of the child–how parenting time is determined in Colorado

If you have children and you’re in the midst of a divorce, you know that child custody can be one of the more contentious aspects between soon-to-be-ex-spouses. You’ve also likely heard the phrase “best interest of the child.” Best interest refers to cases involving the determination of child custody and the factors a court will consider to reach the most positive outcome for the children involved.

Couples are encouraged to come to an agreement about child custody and how they’ll share parenting time on their own, but if they are not able to agree, a court will make a decision on their behalf. The welfare of a child will be the main priority and a judge will look at how the decision will benefit the child the most.

If your life continues to change, the court orders filed at the time of your divorce may no longer be appropriate for your circumstances. Colorado family courts regularly review past orders, such as child support, to make sure they are still relevant. However, you do not have to wait for the courts to catch up to the change in your life. You have the option to ask for a review and a modification of child support orders.
