How does alleged abuse affect child custody?

In Colorado, not all couples who part ways are ending their relationship on the best terms. There are many reasons why this could be the case, but one of the most troublesome is if there is abuse in the relationship. The abuse could be toward a child, from one spouse to the other, or a combination. When the court determines how to handle child custody and visitation schedules, it will consider any allegations of abuse.

Understanding child support issues that frequently arise

It is not unusual for parents who have parted ways as a couple and share a child to still have lingering negative feelings about one another that can seep into the child support payments. While it might not seem that there is a direct correlation between child support and the simmering disputes, it is a real issue that should be considered by both parents. Having a grasp of how parents will be confronted (*note: page 67) with problems due to this is important in settling them so it does not grow worse.

Handling a divorce requires keeping track of important factors

Divorce is one of the most difficult times in a person's life. For Colorado residents who have decided that it is best to move on from an unhappy marriage, there will be many things that go through their minds. However, it is easy to forget important aspects of the process. There are significant financial, personal and professional considerations to account for. The failure to do so can lead to major problems not just in the short-term after the divorce, but in the long-term as well. Keeping certain issues in mind can help to smooth the process.

Yes, you can modify your custody order after a divorce

There's a common misconception that divorce orders are the final word in all matters related to the end of a marriage. It is true that the asset division process is usually set in stone after a divorce (barring evidence of hidden assets uncovered after the fact). The same is not true for child custody and support orders. The courts can and often do revisit child custody orders, as well as spousal support and child support orders.
