Child Custody Lawyers In Aspen

The most contentious aspect of nearly every divorce proceeding, even more contentious than matters concerning property division, is child custody. It is important to not only consider your wishes when it comes to matters of custody and visitation, but also to consider what will be in your child's best interests as well.

At the law firm of Klein Coté Edwards Citron LLC our child custody attorneys in Aspen are experienced in helping parents resolve this often difficult issue.

Determining What Is In The Best Interests Of The Child

The legal standard for child custody decisions is whatever will be in the best interests of the child. There are a number of different factors that the court will consider when determining what will be in the best interests of the child, including the current parent/child relationship and, depending on the child's age and maturity, his or her preference.

In most cases, the court will attempt to reach a resolution that will allow a child to have a relationship with both parents. When both parents have a desire to remain involved in the lives of their children, it will be necessary to reach an agreement in regards to custody. This agreement can either be reached through the collaborative divorce process, mediation or by the court through traditional divorce litigation. Our lawyers will help you explore your options so you can make the most informed decision for moving forward.

Relocating And Modifying Custody Orders

At some point in life, it may be necessary for one parent to relocate. In these cases, it may be necessary to modify a child custody order. Whether you are the custodial parent who is wishing to move or whether your ex is attempting to move, we can help protect your interests when it comes to modifying a custody and visitation order. We also handle modification issues in other contexts, such as changing needs that may arise as a child gets older.
