Colorado Family Law and Complex Family Issues

May 26, 2011
Categories: Child Support and Parenting Time | Author: Harris Law Firm

In 2006, the U.S. Census Bureau defined family as "two or more people who are related by blood, marriage, or adoption who are residing in the same house together." Only five years later, in 2011, what we now define as "family" still includes the "traditional" family of a husband, wife and 2.5 kids, but also includes same sex couples, single parents, and married and unmarried couples. Families now include international adoptions, foster children, and step children from both parents. Blended families have become a social norm because people are choosing lifestyles that are more personally suitable, as opposed to those that conform to societal expectations. Due to the evolution of the American family, our challenge now is to create legislation and establish policies to address the needs of our complex culture and solve the issues that face our contemporary families.
