Here is the conclusion to our three-part blog Colorado Divorce FAQs.
Q: What does the court consider when making decisions regarding child custody during a divorce?
A: Child custody determinations in divorce cases are complicated decisions, and the court will take a number of factors into consideration when making these determinations (when divorcing parents are unable to come to an agreement on their own).
Some of the issues that will play a role in the court’s determination of child custody include (but are not exclusively limited to):
- The child’s wishes (when children are old enough to express these wishes)
- The child’s relationship with each parent
- The mental health of each parent
- Whether the child will have to adjust to a new community
- Whether either parent has a history of abuse, addiction and/or criminal behavior.
Here, it’s also important to point out that child custody decisions can be appealed or altered in the future if or when the circumstances of either parent change.
Q: How much will the divorce cost me?
A: While it currently costs $195 to file a petition for divorce in the state of Colorado, there are other court fees you will have to pay if you file other motions as part of your divorce. In general, however, divorces that can be resolved relatively quickly and with minimal battles will be cheaper.

Q: Should I hire a lawyer to represent me?
A: Yes! The fact is that any divorce proceeding can quickly become contentious, especially when children and/or significant assets are involved. No matter how peacefully or amicably some cases start, it’s possible for feelings of resentment or other issues to quickly arise and complicate a divorce. When this happens, having an attorney on your side to represent your rights in any legal setting will be pivotal to resolving the divorce as favorably and efficiently as possible.
