Though custody is the term commonly used by the public, it's no longer used by courts and lawyers. Instead, allocation of parental responsibilities gets split into two parts - decision making and parenting time. The Law Office Of Catherine Roberts PC will help you with child custody cases in Centennial, Colorado and surrounding areas.
In some cases, parents can reach an agreement without a hearing. In other situations, the court will determine which parent has the authority to make decisions for the child. Parenting time is how much time the child spends with each parent. The amount of time a child spends with you could be a factor when determining child support.
Parents who are not married may seek legal assistance to determine who has the rights to their children. We understand the stress and conflict that often arises in child custody cases. Call 720-961-8829 today to speak with a family law attorney in Centennial, CO and surrounding areas about your situation.
Child support is payable until a child reaches the age of 19. The amount that's determined by the court can change when income or expenses change. The amount is determined by:
The incomes of both parents
The child's medical expenses
Child care expenses
