When to Use a CFI

Using a Colorado CFI

When And Why Is A CFI Needed?

“In which parent’s home will the children spend most of their time?” “Which parent will have primary responsibility for making decisions regarding the children’s education, medical care or religion?” “When is it best for the children for parenting time and decision-making to be split 50/50 between the parents?” These are frequently the most emotionally loaded issues in a divorce, and often a client’s number one priority.

When parents are unable to agree on issues relating to child custody, parenting time, or decision-making authority, we may decide that the use of a Child and Family Investigator (CFI) could benefit our clients. Understanding how the CFI process works is an essential piece in deciding whether to incorporate a CFI into the proceedings.

A Boulder divorce attorney can help parents better understand CFIs, and why and when they’re needed.
