Sioux City, IA (PressExposure) July 14, 2011 -- Ellmann & Ellmann, P.C. are Castle Rock Colorado Lawyers who have successfully handled criminal defense and family law matters. They have announced free evaluation for custody issues. The end of a marriage can be a devastating event for a family. An effective Denver child custody attorney combines experience with sensitivity, especially towards issues involving children and will work to ensure a successful case resolution in a non-combative environment.
"The court system encourages parents to try and work amicably to share child-rearing duties and to reach agreement about decisions that affect their children. Among the most important decisions to be made involves custody of your children. Arrangements for custody and parenting time will be specified in a divorce or legal separation decree. Sometimes, though, such arrangements require adjustments or modification. When custody changes are needed, consult your Denver child custody attorney for guidance", says a spokesperson for Ellmann & Ellmann, P.C.
All the decisions that are made by the court that involve child care and custody are based on what the law defines as "the best interests of the child." That means that, when it comes to your children, the court wants to ensure that any arrangements made will take into consideration the physical, emotional and mental needs of the children. Despite the most careful planning, changes to custody and other child-related arrangements are sometimes necessary. Modifying a custody decree involves the approval of the court.
Issues also arise in cases where a custodial parent wishes to relocate, taking the children along. Relocation is a matter for the court to approve, so retaining the services of an attorney who specializes in child custody matters can prove especially important. Colorado law relating to child custody is complex and very specific in describing situations that allow for modifying existing custody agreements. Therefore, it is crucial to consult with an experienced Denver child custody attorney to resolve the custody issues in a non-combative environment.
"Some of the types of family law issues we handle include divorce, property division, child custody, child support and modifications. In addition, we have many clients who come to us wishing to add to their family. The reward in facilitating a successful adoption is tremendous, for us and for you", adds the spokesperson.
