Attorney Helping Divorcing Spouses Resolve Legal Issues in Denver and Douglas County

Marriages break down for a variety of reasons, and many couples who decide to get a divorce attempt to do so without using an attorney. They may take this approach in hopes that they can avoid conflict, lower the cost, and keep things as simple as possible, with the goal of working together to reach decisions and avoid going to court. While it may make sense to approach divorce in this way, those who do not have legal representation often make mistakes that prolong the process or oversights that lead to difficulties in the future.

At Pesch Law Office PC, our team understands that divorce can be an emotional situation to deal with, and we know that you are likely looking to resolve the issues as quickly and easily as possible. When you work with our Team, we will advise you on how you can best pursue an amicable divorce, and we will also make sure you know your rights. If negotiations with your spouse break down, we will be ready to advocate for you during divorce litigation.

How an Attorney Can Help With Your Divorce

Legally dissolving your marriage will involve multiple different types of legal issues related to the property you own, debts incurred, the income earned by both spouses, your children, and other aspects of your lives. Even if you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse approach the divorce process in a spirit of cooperation and compromise, identifying all of the issues that will need to be addressed and determining how to resolve them can seem overwhelming.

With a lawyer on your side, you can make sure you fully understand all aspects of your divorce case and issues to be decided. We will take the time to educate you about your rights and how the law applies to you. This will help you make informed decisions as you work out the details of your divorce settlement.

Understanding how the law defines marital property and separate property will help you determine what needs to be addressed during the process of asset and debt division. With our experience in these matters, we can make sure you properly consider issues such as your family home and other real estate property, valuation of business interests owned by either spouse, retirement savings and pension benefits, and inheritances or family trusts. By addressing your own needs while also considering your spouse's position, you are more likely to reach an amicable agreement.

When it comes to matters related to child custody, you will want to make sure you are putting your children's best interests first. We can help you craft a parenting plan that will allow your children to maintain positive relationships with both you and your spouse while also providing you with the tools you need to cooperate with each other as co-parents in the years to come.

Even if you are hoping to resolve your divorce peaceably and cooperatively, there are times when disagreements may become unavoidable. In these situations, it is essential to have legal representation. We will help you defuse conflict when possible and find ways to resolve disputes, and we will also be ready to advocate on your behalf in the courtroom. We will do everything we can to help you reach a positive resolution to your case that will allow you to move forward with your life successfully.
