The Right Arrangement is Out There. Let’s Find It.

In Colorado, what is commonly referred to as “custody” is legally known as “allocation of parental responsibilities,” which encompasses decision-making and parenting time (custody).  In cases involving children, parents must determine whether major decisions will be made jointly or exclusively by one party, whether one parent will be designated as the children’s primary custodian, and how the parents will share parenting time with the children.

At Cage Bucar Lewis, we guide our clients through the murky waters of contentious custody cases that often involve substance abuse issues, mental health issues and/or matters involving domestic violence. In matters involving children, we understand that the law does not always provide the answers, and we are prepared to help you find them in or outside of the courtroom.

EXPERTISE

Cage Bucar Lewis has extensive experience with all matters involving children. We know the landscape and will guide you through every step.

Determining a parenting plan that is in the best interests of your children is unique to your situation. There is no “one size fits all” solution, and what your neighbor did in his divorce or custody case may not work with your job, your lifestyle or your family. Talk to a lawyer about the different parenting plan options that best suit your needs. 

In some cases, supervised parenting time for one parent is the best option; in other situations, equally shared parenting time is best. You know your family better than anyone else, and our lawyers will listen to you and help you find the solution that is in the best interests of your family.

Our team of attorneys are experienced in handling all types of matters involving children, including non-parent custody cases where a third party, i.e. grandparent, stepparent, or family member, is seeking allocation of parental responsibilities (custody); juvenile cases, including termination of parental rights and dependency and neglect; paternity actions; and grandparent and great-grandparent visitation actions. Please contact us if you want more information about your rights when it comes to your children.
