Legal Help and Guidance in Arapahoe County Divorce Cases
In many cases, spouses attempt to pursue an amicable divorce and cooperate with each other to create a divorce settlement. We can assist in these negotiations and ensure that your rights will be protected in any agreements you make with your spouse. We can also provide representation in high conflict divorce situations, including cases where divorce litigation will be necessary.
We can provide legal help with:
Parental responsibilities and parenting time - If you are a parent, you will need to make decisions about how you will share custody of your children with your spouse. Your divorce decree will include a parenting plan that details each parent's responsibility for making major child-related decisions, includes a schedule for parenting time during the school year and vacations and holidays, and addresses any other issues related to co-parenting.
Child support - Children have the right to receive financial support from both parents, and child support obligations are determined based on parents' combined income and the number of overnights the children have with each parent. We can ensure that child support is calculated correctly, including determining all income sources, while also presenting options to you to determine how both parents will pay for additional expenses involving childcare, medical care, and children's activities. We can also help you address whether parents will assist with your children's college expenses.
Marital property division - When determining fair and equitable ways to divide the property and debts you have acquired during your marriage, it is important to gain a full understanding of your financial situation. This includes assets each party owns separately and whether this property increased or decreased in value while you were married.
Spousal maintenance - Financial support may be awarded to one party from the other if spousal support or maintenance is needed by one party to cover their ongoing expenses. Whether the other party is able to make these types of payments and still meet their own needs is also considered. We can help determine whether spousal maintenance should be paid, and we will ensure that the amount and duration of payments are calculated correctly.
High net worth divorce - Large annual incomes or valuable assets can complicate the divorce process. Spouses may need to address issues related to investments, multiple real estate properties, valuables, executive compensation, or retirement benefits. A business valuation can help business owners and their spouses understand the value of business assets and find ways to divide business assets in a way that will allow a company to continue operating. Spouses from wealthy families should be sure to understand their rights regarding family trusts and inheritances.
Post-divorce enforcement or modifications - If you experience significant changes after your divorce has been finalized, such as the loss of a job or a move to a new location, you may be able to petition the court to modify your divorce decree. In situations where your ex-spouse has not followed their legal requirements, you can petition the court to enforce the terms of your divorce or child custody order.
