Lakewood Child Custody Modification Lawyers

Compassionate Solutions And Vigorous Advocacy

A family law order covering custody and parenting time will stay in place until the court issues a new order. When both parents agree to the new arrangements, the court will generally grant the modification, provided that it is in the "best interest" of the child. The standards by which the court will issue its ruling concerning a modification vary, depending on the length of time from the issuance of the previous order and other factors.

How Will The Court Rule In Your Case?

Colorado courts apply complex standards when reviewing custody modification petitions.

If less than two years have passed since the court's prior determination — the petitioner must show that continuation of the prior custody order regarding decision-making responsibilities may endanger the child's physical health or emotional development.

If more than two years have passed since the court's prior determination — our attorneys can help you show that a change in the situation of the parties warrants a modification of child custody or a change in decision-making responsibilities. The party seeking modification must establish that the parties agree that a parenting-time modification makes a change in decision-making appropriate, or that the current order would endanger the child's physical health or significantly impair the child's emotional development.
