Getting through your divorce without a costly court battle

Divorce is difficult for every member of a Colorado family. There are complex emotions involved and sensitive issues to address, including property division, child custody, spousal support and more. Fortunately, there are ways to resolve disputes and work through difficult issues without resorting to litigation and courtroom battles.

For many couples, it is possible to reach a final divorce order through various methods of resolving disputes. Alternative dispute resolution is not for every situation, but it could be the right option for you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse. If you wish to keep your divorce out of court, you may start by understanding more about various methods of ADR.

Summer may wreck your parenting plan

You are fortunate if your court-ordered child custody arrangement is working with few glitches. Maybe this is because you and your ex-spouse were able to come to an agreement on your own or through mediation. Holidays may have been difficult at first, and you may have found it upsetting to spend the time away from your children. However, the schedule is as fair as possible under the circumstances.

The next big hurdle is summer. Everything changes when the kids are out of school, and you may already be discovering that following a rigid schedule is going to be difficult. You may be tempted to toss out the custody agreement, but experts say this is not a good idea.

Child custody and co-parenting in Colorado

If you are thinking about divorce or you have already begun the process, it's safe to say that you no longer feel the same way about your spouse as you once did. However, if you and your spouse have children together, you undoubtedly still want to raise your children to be happy and secure people, although you may have concerns about how this can work.

The hope is that parents will be able to work together to raise their children, even if the marriage is over. The courts in Colorado recognize parental responsibilities and the best interests of the child as the core elements to consider in child custody decisions.

Is co-parenting the right choice for your family?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to child custody concerns. Just as each family is different, it is important that every child custody plan is tailored to the unique needs of those particular parents and children. Finding a child custody plan that works for your family is an important decision, and many Colorado families find that they benefit from a co-parenting plan.
