Might a child be interviewed in determining child custody?

When a Colorado couple gets a divorce and child custody is an issue, the dispute between the parties might lend itself to the child being pushed off to the side as an unwitting part of the process. With a younger child or toddler who cannot make a statement regarding an opinion, this makes some semblance of sense. However, since the best interests of the child are at stake, it is wise to know where the child stands on child custody and visitation. This is where the law allows for an interview to be conducted.
