Colorado law permits a modification of parenting time when it suits the best interest of the children. This can be misleading, however, as courts are often reluctant to modify a parenting plan which substantially decreases one parent’s parenting time. At the same time, courts are inclined to grant parents more parenting time so the child has ample time with each parent. Obviously, if you increase one parent’s time, you are decreasing the other parent’s time. So which is it?
As each family brings its own set of unique factors and issues to the table, it is best to confer with an attorney to see if a modification of parenting time is right for you and your children.
