Denver - Family Law Attorney

Broomfield County family lawyer for divorcing spouses and unmarried parents

Lawyer for Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, and Paternity (APR) in Boulder County and Jefferson County

Family law encompasses multiple different types of legal issues related to spouses, parents, children, and other family members. These matters can become very complicated, and they often involve strong emotions and contentious disputes, which can make them difficult to resolve without the help of an attorney. Fortunately, by working with a skilled lawyer, divorcing spouses, unmarried parents, or other family members can rest assured that they are approaching their case the right way, and they can find the best ways to resolve their issues successfully.

While you may think that getting a lawyer involved in your case will lead to higher levels of conflict, Pesch Law Office PC strives to help our clients resolve disputes quickly, efficiently, and amicably. We will advise you on how you may be able to avoid or minimize conflict, and we will work to negotiate settlements whenever possible, offering guidance on ways to reach your own agreements. However, we will also make sure you know your rights and responsibilities in connection with your case, and if necessary, we are ready to zealously represent you during negotiations or litigation, ensuring that you will be able to achieve your goals.

Legal Help With Divorce and Child-Related Issues

The process of legally dissolving your marriage can be complex, and you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse will need to determine how to address multiple legal and financial issues. We can provide you with legal representation whether your divorce is amicable or whether divorce is considered high-conflict. We will work to help you reach an out-of-court settlement whenever possible, but we will also make sure you understand the steps of the divorce litigation process should it become necessary to resolve matters in the courtroom.

Financial issues are often some of the most complicated aspects of a divorce. We will make sure you understand your rights when it comes to the characterization of marital property or separate property together with asset and debt division. We will help you reach agreements in these matters to ensure you will have the financial resources you need. We will help you determine whether spousal support will be a factor in your divorce. If spousal maintenance is appropriate, we will make sure the amount and duration of payments are calculated correctly. We can also help you address unique financial issues in a high net worth divorce, including business valuation and family trusts or inheritances.

Matters related to children are another important part of family law cases, including situations involving divorcing parents or unmarried parents who need to establish paternity. We work with parents to address issues related to child custody, helping them negotiate parenting plans that detail how decision-making responsibilities and parenting time will be allocated. We can also make sure child support obligations are calculated correctly, and we can also address expenses such as childcare, medical costs, and extra-curricular activities, as well as parents' contributions to children's college expenses.

Child Custody

Parents who are getting divorced or unmarried parents who are separated will need to create a parenting plan that decides how they will share in parental responsibilities. A parenting plan will address legal custody, also known as the right to share in decision-making responsibilities for children, and physical custody, meaning the parenting time that each parent will have with their children, when, where, and how. Pesch Law Office starts with providing a copy of a comprehensive parenting plan that can be tailored to the needs of your family.

Child Support

Parents who are divorced or separated are required to provide financial support to ensure that their children's ongoing needs will be met. Child support is determined based on all sources of income earned by both parents, and the amount of time children live with each parent is a factor that is considered. Child support is resolved AFTER a parenting time schedule is reached. We can help you make sure child support obligations are calculated correctly while also addressing other child-related expenses and college expenses for non-minor children.
