High Conflict Custody Cases

Allocation of Parental Rights &
High Conflict Custody Cases

The attorneys at Lass Moses & Ramp LLC are dedicated to helping our clients achieve child custody orders which provide their children with safety, stability, security and the ability to have meaningful relationships with their parents and caregivers. In Colorado, traditional notions of “child custody” are separated into two areas of parental rights, 1) parenting time and 2) allocations of decision-making authority. We work closely with our clients to create developmentally and psychologically appropriate parenting plans for children based on the children’s ages, life experiences, and individual needs. In most cases, we are able to achieve these results without litigation through an approach to advocacy and education that highlights the best interests of individual children while seeking to avoid the harm that comes to children from experiencing high conflict between their parents and family members.

However, litigation concerning children may be unavoidable in high conflict cases involving addiction, domestic violence, child abuse, parental alienation, mental illness, personality disorders, criminal conduct or other dangers to the safety and welfare of children. In such cases, we are able to zealously represent our clients in court through protection order hearings, temporary orders, permanent orders, contempt of court actions, and emergency requests to restrict parenting time. In addition to our extraordinary litigation skills, we provide ongoing support to our clients by providing professional resources and referrals designed to identify and focus on resolving the family dynamics which negatively impact the children’s best interests.

In addition to representation of clients in traditional parental rights disputes, at Lass Moses & Ramp LLC, our attorneys have extensive experience addressing complex legal issues involving requests to relocate out of state, international custody issues, contested paternity proceedings, psychological parent or third party actions, and grandparent visitation requests. In such cases, we look for creative ways to resolve the disputes outside of court to allow the families to move forward. Where no amicable solutions can be reached, we bring deep legal knowledge and understanding of the complex legal posture of these cases to educate courts and to advocate for our clients and their children.
