Understanding The Divorce Process
Colorado’s legal process for divorce can be confusing to many clients. We will help you understand each step so you can make informed decisions about the choices you must make along the way. The main issues your divorce must address include:
- Division of marital property — This part of the process tends to be the most complex, requiring a financial analysis of all marital assets.
- Child support — If you have children, the court will apply the state standards for calculating who pays support.
- Child custody — Perhaps the most emotional issue of any divorce, custody and visitation issues cause the most concern for any parent during a divorce.
- Spousal support — Also known as alimony, spousal support is an issue in some divorces, but not all. One spouse may pay support to the other spouse for either a short time period or a longer one.
Settlement Or Trial?
Many people begin the divorce process with mixed emotions, including anger and frustration with their spouse. Finding common ground during the divorce may not seem achievable. As you work through the issues, however, you may find that tempers settle and you are willing to put aside your differences in order to reach your goals. Negotiating an agreement you can both live with gives you greater power over your future than leaving everything up to a judge at trial. We are skilled at using mediation or other types of dispute resolution methods to make this happen. If you simply cannot come to an agreement, however, we will fight vigorously for you in court.
