Child Custody

Child Custody Attorney In Fort Collins

Regardless of the particulars of your dissolving marital bonds or domestic partnership breakup, it is important for you to understand your child custody (parenting time) options. At The Law Office of Thomas W. Martin, LLC, in Fort Collins, we can work with you to help you through the challenging process of determining child custody in Colorado.

We are interested in defending your right to maintain family ties despite your coming divorce or separation. We understand that your goal is likely to preserve your family as well as you can, even though you and the other parent are no longer together.

What Is Best For The Children?

The question of what will happen to the children after a divorce is a burning question for almost every parent. Regardless of the particulars of the parents' separation or marital dissolution, children's relationships to their parents will be affected. Colorado family law statutes, as in every other state and country, spell out ways in which children's well-being and rights should be protected in a divorce or separation scenario.

Each Situation Requires A Tailored Approach

Perhaps you are expecting a child without the benefit of marriage. Or perhaps you and your spouse have been long separated and have been negotiating responsibilities for your children's care and whereabouts informally. A child custody order offers important legal protections. Whether yours is a traditional marital dissolution situation or a nontraditional family separation, you need to consult with an experienced family law attorney about questions such as:

  • How will your children's well-being be protected while parents live separate lives?
  • How will your parental rights be protected?
  • What constitutes a fair and just outcome in your family's circumstances?
  • Is joint custody an achievable goal in your family's unique situation?

At our law practice, we focus on customization of legal solutions. We are sensitive to individual needs, and make it a priority to stay accessible to our clients. We can be aggressive in the face of overreaching relatives who are complicating your children's stability if that is needed. Clients of The Law Office of Thomas W. Martin, LLC, above all seek workable child custody arrangements — and we guide them through the process of translating this goal into practical legal solutions.
