Parents of minor children must make important decisions when ending a relationship. If you and your co-parent are separating your lives, you’ll need to determine where the children will live and how much time each child should spend with each parent.
These decisions can be sensitive and not everyone can amicably communicate about timesharing following a divorce. In these situations, you need a trained Denver timesharing schedule mediation attorney from Divorce Resolutions, LLC on your side. Our team will meet with each party and guide you through a series of important topics, helping you create a timesharing schedule that works for your children.
Colorado doesn’t use the terms “child custody” or “visitation,” as they do not accurately portray the relationship between children and their parents. Instead, the state uses the terms “parental responsibility” and “parenting time.”
Parents can split parental responsibilities jointly, or one parent can have primary parental responsibility over the children. If a child spends less than 90 overnight visits with a parent, the other parent will usually be considered the primary guardian.
Timesharing schedules help divvy up parenting time between you and your spouse or co-parent. These schedules determine when the children will stay with each parent and who will have the children during holidays, vacations, and other important events.
It’s important to follow your timesharing schedule carefully. You could find yourself in court if one parent breaks the terms of the schedule without discussing it with the other.
You can typically create a timesharing agreement in one of two ways: via mediation, or through litigation. If you’re filing for divorce or separation and your case makes it to the courtroom, the court will be the one to make the final decision regarding your parental responsibilities. This decision will be made with regard to your children’s best interests.
During mediation, you and your spouse or co-parent can create an agreement without going to trial or even filing a petition in Colorado court. In this process, a trained Denver timesharing schedule mediator will help both parties create a parenting plan and a timesharing schedule that works best for the whole family.
