Aurora Child Custody Lawyer

Top-rated Aurora divorce attorneys, where clients matter most.

Child custody proceedings in Aurora can be some of the most difficult legal hearings to resolve. This is not because child custody hearings are legally complex or the governing statutes are difficult to apply; instead, child custody hearings and disputes threaten one of the most sacrosanct relationships in our existence – the relationship between you and your child. Your child custody hearing can determine whether your child will live primarily with you, what visitation schedule the other parent will enjoy, how medical and educational decisions will be made regarding the child, and what financial burden you will need to bear in order to facilitate the parenting plan.

During your child custody proceeding, the court will focus on what it believes the best interests of your child are. You need a dedicated advocate whose focus is on your rights as a parent. Call Divorce Matters® today and discuss your case with us.

Types of Child Custody Decisions that are Routinely Made in Aurora

 Child custody orders are entered in an Aurora divorce proceeding or in a dedicated child custody lawsuit whenever you and your child’s parents are divorcing or separating and it therefore becomes impossible for both you and the other parent to visit and spend time with your child at the same time. If you and the other parent can agree how to provide one another with adequate parenting time and an opportunity to participate in the child’s upbringing, a court’s role may only be to adopt and affirm your agreement.

If no agreement can be reached, the court will consider your child’s best interests and accordingly enter orders:

  • Selecting either you or the child’s other parent as the primary residential parent with whom the child will regularly reside;
  • Establishing a “parenting plan” that describes the schedule according to which the other parent will visit with the child (including the holidays that parent will be able to visit the child), where exchanges are to occur, and how important decisions regarding the child’s medical care and education are to be decided;
  • Modifying any previous orders entered in the case (or in other cases) so as to eliminate any confusion;
  • Hold a party in contempt for failing to abide by the orders set by the court.

Words From Our Clients

I appreciated that not only did Will know law like I know my colors, but he was a counselor as well and guided me through the process. I was nervous many times but was able to fully out my trust in what he was doing and I couldn't be happier. I will continue to refer people to him as o hear of those needing assistance.


Going through a challenging divorce is hell, your team had my back and represented me with a solid council. I have my daughters and got to stay in Colorado with them. I cannot thank you enough.


Keep doing what you doing; your firm rocks!
