For some Wheat Ridge, Colorado, divorcing couples, it may be easy to talk badly about one's soon-to-be former spouse especially if a divorce is acrimonious.

Residents of Jefferson County, Colorado, know that raising children can be very expensive. But as expensive as that is, adoption can cost couples even more.

Parents in Colorado know how important it is to discuss child custody issues during divorce or in cases of unwed parents. Generally, child custody focuses on the best interests of the child and not the parents. Family court judges determine which parent best fits as the custodial parent of the children and grants the non-custodial parent visitation rights, allowing a continued parental role with the children.
