Colorado Divorce and Joint Parental Decision-Making

Joint Parental Decision-Making

Although one parent may be the primary parent, Colorado law generally states that both parents share in the decision-making responsibilities for the children following the dissolution of marriage. This means that the parent who the children are staying with at the time typically makes the day-to-day decisions such as homework, play dates, discipline, bedtimes, etc., but both parents must make the major decisions regarding the children together. These decisions would include those affecting physical and mental health, education, general well-being and spiritual upbringing. In an emergency situation however, the law states that either parent can consent to necessary medical treatment.
