Custody and Support Agreements and Modifications for Your Unique Family
It is important to know that a change in child custody or parenting time requires a substantial change of circumstance, which varies by the facts of your case. Therefore, it is very important that you consult with an accomplished family law attorney who can advise you on your rights to physical or legal custody or time with your child.
The family law mediation process can be used to alter parenting time due to changing job schedules, school schedules of parents or children and children's desires. However, there is no magic age when the court will consider a child's wishes. This determination is fact-based according to an individual family's circumstances.

Colorado favors meaningful and continuing contact between parents and children following a divorce. Couples generally develop a parenting plan by one of following:
- The parties come to an agreement, often through the family law mediation process, regarding how the parenting responsibilities will be divided and then the agreement is submitted to the court for approval; or
- The court will hold an evidentiary hearing to determine what parenting plan best fits the needs of the child, and order this plan as part of a permanent custody and parenting time order.
The most important factor in a court's decision on custody and parenting time issues is "the best interests of the child."
