Child Custody/Parenting Time

Contact Us

In a perfect world, cooler heads would prevail and parents would agree what is in the best
interests of the children. Unfortunately, that does not always occur.

One of the most difficult things for any party in a child custody dispute is convincing a judge that they are a “good parent” in a 1- or 2-day trial. The adversarial system is not ideal for disputes over children. But judges are nonetheless required to make decisions about the best interests of the children involved. Every parent has a story to tell. Knowing a judge’s background and persuasively telling that story is key.

The RKV Law Domestic Relations Team has carved out a reputation as the child custody lawyers who can effectively tell a parent’s story. They are known for their work in highly contentious child custody disputes. They have dealt with a number of “relocation cases” where one parent wants to move away from the Vail, Aspen, Glenwood or elsewhere.

Ryan, Amy, Georgina and Samantha are candid with their clients and tell them when they are unreasonable. They understand the complexities of being a parent. If a case can be settled, they will do everything possible to make it happen. Mediators and other attorneys routinely ask them to share sections from the various parenting plans they have drafted on behalf of clients.

On the other hand, they are zealous advocates for their client’s position and they are not
afraid to go to trial to obtain a good result for their client. They have worked with experts such as Child Family Investigators (CFIs), Parental Responsibility Evaluators (PREs), Parenting Coordinators, Decision-Makers, Child Legal Representatives (CLRs), Guardian Ad Litems (GALs), therapists, psychotherapists and counselors. They help marshal the relevant evidence for a child custody dispute with their knowledge on discovery of social media and experience in litigating custody cases.
