CAN I GET MORE TIME WITH MY MINOR CHILDREN THAN THE ORIGINAL PARENTING TIME

CAN I GET MORE TIME WITH MY MINOR CHILDREN THAN THE ORIGINAL PARENTING TIME

Many people as a result of a Divorce or a Parental Responsibility Action may have years ago entered into custody and parenting time arrangements that provided limited time for them with their minor children. As children get older, a parent who has an excellent  relationship with the minor children, often comes in to see me to find out what it will take to expand his or her time with the minor children.   Basically the new parental responsibility law in Colorado tries to make sure that both parents have as much time with the children as is good for the children and have as large a role in the minor children’s lives as possible.  Consequently, unless you are asking to modify the designation of the primary parent, the residential parent, courts are always happy to expand your time with your minor children if the Court sees that it would be a benefit to the minor children to do so.
