When deciding issues of child custody in the Centennial State, Colorado courts consider a number of factors. These include the wishes of the parents, the wishes of a mature child, the mental health of all parties, the child's level of adjustment to the community and the ability of each parent to encourage the sharing of love and affection with the other parent. The judge makes the call on child custody based on the best interests of the child. Thus, it can be important for a parent to have an experienced advocate working on their behalf to make their case to the judge.
