Day-to-day decision-making is typically made by the parent exercising parenting time when the issue arises.

Joint Decision-Making In Colorado

Decision-making can be joint, where both parties make decisions together for their children. This requires the ability to communicate effectively, weigh the facts and make a decision. Often, in a divorce proceeding, it is nearly impossible for the parties to agree on anything. Our experienced attorneys can help you set forth the facts and make an argument for the court explaining why you are best situated to have sole decision-making responsibilities.
