Denver, CO asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Colorado

Q: I have a status conference coming up. It's in regards to a relocation request by the other parent whom moved already.

How should I prepare. Why do we need to have a status conference? She was just found in contempt for not abiding by our current order. She's already filed her request and I filed my response opposing it. Why can't the judge just make the call?

A: The parties have the right to present evidence so relocation matters are decided after an evidentiary proceeding. The status conference is to check the status, however based on the history of the case, the court will be intending to discuss some particular aspect that would have been previously identified.

A: The relocation motion can only be decided after the judge hears all the evidence for and against the requested move. The status conference may be to discuss how the case will proceed and perhaps to schedule a hearing. you should get a lawyer to help you with this.
