Asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law and Child Custody for Colorado

Q: My wife needs to change court orders placed when she got divorced regarding the kids but needs a forensic assessment

We do not know how to get a referral for her forensic assessment and wondered if getting a pro bono lawyer, as we are a low income family, would help solve our issues. I have a ton more information regarding the exact situation if this is the right direction.

A: You should consult with an attorney who will need information about any prior court orders and will need to understand the context of the need for a forensic evaluation. This matter clearly has a history involving some form of safety issue. You could also consult with a therapist who might be able to assist in a referral. Colorado Legal Services can assist some with legal matters if income eligible.
