Lakewood Parenting Time Lawyer
One of the most difficult aspects of divorce is the effect it has on the children involved. Unfortunately, children are often used as pawns in a game played between their parents. Parenting time is a different concept from what was known as custody. Colorado has a stated policy of encouraging frequent contact with both parents. However, the details of how to achieve this policy are complicated.
