A CFI Report not not pertain to "justice" but rather the best interests of the children. Generally prosecutors are not interested in pursuing issues that arise in civil matters. However if you believe that someone behaved inappropriately in the civil case, you can raise that issue in the civil case.
I am sorry to hear about your situation. Colorado is a no-fault divorce state which means that in general marital fault does not impact parenting time matters. There are exceptions for matter that impact the children and there can be exceptions for economic fault.
You file a motion with the court requesting one and stating the reasons why you believe one is necessary. If you qualify for state payment, then there is no cost to you for the investigator. If you do not, then the investigation is capped at $2750, with each parent generally paying for half of the...Read more »
You may request that the judge interview the children. Many/most judges will not do so. Another option is to request a CFI (Child and Family Investigator) who can report on the situation. You should get a lawyer to help you with this.

I am sorry to hear about your situation. You can move to modify the parenting plan and enforce support. However, you do have to notify him.

You should file a court case to get these things in place. Child support can be set based on the respective incomes of the parents. A parenting plan can be established in accord with the best interest of the child. You should get a lawyer to help you with this.
We have joint custody and I have primary custody. Parenting time is switch every 2 weeks. My relocation would be to Texas for better living and because I would be able to buy a house there. Our son is 11turning 12 in May.

I have primary custody of our son. My ex recently got married right before his deployment and is now saying that he is giving his parenting time to his new wife. I was under the impression that when he deployed I had temporary full custody. Is he legally allowed to give his parenting time away?
He can request that. A fit parent is considered to be able to delegate his or her time. However, the delegation is not automatic. You can contest it as not being in the best interests of the children, if that is the case. He also would have to file with the court to modify the current plan if you...Read more »
