Parental Rights Of The Father

Under the Colorado divorce laws, the courts cannot and do not automatically favor the mother when it comes to custody of the children. The courts take the welfare or best interests of the child into consideration when it decides parenting time. The father is allotted parenting time, which indicates how much time they can spend with their child. Unless parents reach an agreement, these times are set by the courts and in the best interest of the child.

Because the law in Colorado looks at the parent gender neutral, parents are seen as equals.
