Since Colorado is an equitable distribution state, many individuals have questions or concerns about how property is divided. Equitable distribution means that all property, assets and marital debts are divided equally, but not necessarily 50-50. Our firm can help you determine what types of marital assets are subject to division (homes, 410ks, pensions) and also clarify the debt that is to be divided. We can also obtain a business valuation if a closely held business is subject to division.
Also called spousal support or spousal maintenance, alimony is the money paid by one spouse to the other in order to support the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed. In general, the court will consider a variety of factors when determining the amount and duration of alimony. Our firm strives to help clients with their alimony issues, whether they are seeking alimony or attempting to prevent alimony payments from being ordered.
When children are involved in a divorce situation, it is extremely important that all issues pertaining to them and their well being are addressed as efficiently and peacefully as possible. Unfortunately, child custody, visitation and child support issues are often the source of prolonged and bitter disputes in a divorce situation. We strive to help minimize the additional strain placed upon children and parents when dealing with difficult custody and support issues. Our firm is fully knowledgeable of the Colorado divorce laws regarding child custody and child support and will pass our knowledge onto you.
