Military Child Custody
The family law attorneys of Family Law Group recognize that military families face unique challenges. Long deployments and frequent relocations can take a heavy toll on even the strongest families. Divorce often complicates these matters, especially when children are involved and child custody is in dispute.
We proudly represent clients stationed at the Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base and Schriever Air Force Base.
El Paso County Military Visitation Attorneys | Representing Clients In Colorado Springs, Pueblo And Surrounding Areas
Traditional notions of physical custody and visitation rights quickly fall by the wayside when one or even both parents are in the military. Frequent deployments and relocations mean that it can be difficult for the remote parent to adhere to a standard visitation schedule with his or her children.
Because Colorado adopted the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), courts here will resolve child custody disputes when Colorado is the child’s home state.
Our lawyers are experienced in handling these types of custody disputes and developing creative custody and visitation plans that reflect the reality of parents who must often be away for months at a time. Whether you are the parent who is deployed or the one who is in Colorado, we can help you obtain a fair child custody arrangement.
