What Are Mothers’ Rights in Colorado?
Although mothers and fathers have exactly the same rights as it relates to divorce and custody in the state of Colorado, women often face unique challenges in these types of cases. More than ever, many law firms today are now touting themselves as “Father’s Rights,” lawyers. While this is something of a misnomer in Colorado, it does signal that some lawyers are becoming much more aggressive in pushing their male client’s divorce and custody cases. As a woman, it is important to see things as they truly are in your case, not worse than they are. This way, when certain claims (and even threats) are made by your spouse, such as a claim that your spouse is going to take away the children, you can handle these issues appropriately.
