As one of the top family law attorneys in Colorado Springs, our family law cases are generally based upon Title 14 of the Colorado Revised Code. Title 14, C.R.S., which encompasses the Uniform Dissolution of Marriage Act (for divorces) also covers allocations of parental responsibility which are custody cases for non-married parents and any modifications of Court Orders for these cases. Title 14 allows Colorado Courts to issue divorces (also called a “dissolution of marriage”) for Parties where at least one of the Parties has been domiciled within the State of Colorado for at least 90 days. Custody Orders (either within the divorce or for unmarried couples) can be issued if the Child has resided in the State of Colorado for at least 182 days (6 months). Enforcing or modifying custody decrees also generally requires the Child to be residing within the State of Colorado for at least 182 days–with a few specific exceptions. Any Parent who is under a custody decree and wishes to relocate with their Child for personal or employment reasons must go through the Court to receive permission. Child support matters are also governed by Title 14. Call a family law specialist to get started on your case today.
